Missing 14-year-old Indian teen found safe

Amherst Police

State troopers in Ohio say they have found a 14-year-old boy from India who went missing from his tour group while they were in Western New York last week.

A State Highway Patrol spokesman says Gursewak Singh was found Wednesday at a rest stop along the Ohio Turnpike near the Indiana state line.

Police say the boy was traveling with a truck driver who apparently is an acquaintance of the boy's family. The boy was last seen in the Sheridan Drive-Bailey Avenue area of Amherst a week ago.

Ohio police say they think the boy ran away from the tour group. He says they are making arrangements to return the boy to his family and there willl not be any charges against the truck driver.
