Missing 10 year old Anthony McCorckle returned home safe to his Little Creek Apartment that he shares with his parents. McCorckle reportedly was playing with his sister and other friends outside when suddenly he took off running into the woods.
His sister returned home to tell her parents that Anthony, who is said to be severely ADHD, had run off and hadn’t returned. After an hour or so Anthony’s parents called police who in turn called in Search and Rescue and the Coast Guard helicopter to begin searching for the boy. The Little Creek Apartments is located just uphill from Highway 101, an area where transients are routinely seen moving through the area. Transient camps are also fairly common nearby as well as in several other areas of Newport.
At 2am this morning the search was called off for the evening, with plans to resume at 8am.
But at 5:45 this morning, Anthony showed back up at home telling his parents that he ran off, climbed through a neighbor’s window and hid under a bed all night.
An earlier report indicated that due to Anthony’s hyper-activity disorder, he does this sort of thing every so often.
