6-YEAR-OLD LEFT BEHIND, BUT HE KEEPS HIS COOL

The 6-year-old boy accidentally abandoned at a restaurant by his vacation-minded parents shed nary a tear.

The Kanab boy's family left him behind at a McDonald's about 10 a.m. Thursday."I was going to the bathroom and they left me."

A Clearfield officer picked up Shad while law officers throughout Davis County were asked to keep a lookout for the boy's family.

A Sunset police officer eventually spotted the parents, who were traveling back toward Clearfield after having noticed the boy was gone.

Meantime, Shad whiled away the 90 minutes or so waiting for his family by playing games with police personnel and munching on snacks.

The relieved but embarrassed parents, who asked not to be identified, retrieved their son, thanked police and resumed their trip to Alaska.
