Quite a sensation was created Wednesday morning when the news was spread around that one of the boys of Henry Zoerb had wandered away the evening before and not been seen since. The boy is about fifteen years old and mentally not accountable for what he does at times. The relatives and near-by friends searched all night for the boy. A large number turned out and searched the woods along the river but he could not be found anywhere. About twelve o'clock he was located at Chas. Kern's place, two miles west of town, having walked as far as Martel's near the Geroux bridge and turned back. He was thinly clad but the night was not a cold one and he had not suffered much.
