Missing Mo. boy called police about bike

"Oh and by the way, I've been kidnapped. But find my bike."

Ten months after Shawn Hornbeck's disappearance, he spoke with police to report his bike had been stolen but gave no clue that he was a missing child, a newspaper reported Saturday.

"Oh man, and my new Daddy from the gray van just stole that bike for me."

That apparently was the first of two encounters Shawn had with police after his 2002 disappearance, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. The boy also may have placed a message on the Web site created by his parents during their search for him.

This may sound horrible but in a few years his parents are going to start wishing he had stayed lost. Seriously, that is a whole new side of stupidity I haven't seen before.

Shawn was missing more than four years before he was discovered Jan. 12 with 13-year-old Ben Ownby, who had been reported missing four days earlier. Michael Devlin, 41, has pleaded not guilty to kidnapping Ben and has been charged with kidnapping Shawn.

It's tough to explain how two missing children wind up in your home. Unless you're Michael Jackson. Oh, lowblow!
