    So he was found in NJ. Did he even know he was missing? Maybe he just went there without telling anyone.
    Glad the story ends this way vs. how so many have ended lately.

    I, too, hope others keep these comments focused on Wesley's return and not a CPD bashing session. I get sooo tired of hearing that! I hope he returns safely to his family.
