two Amish boys both 12 took off from thier Amish school on an adventure they won't forget. One had been reading the stories of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn.So they too took off to find the Mississippi River and to do like Huck and Tom. ,but they got lost on the way .Said they slept in a barn last night ,ate a sandwhich that they had with them.people were out looking for them but couldn't find them.Said they waved tothe chopper over head but kept on walking. They were found about 15 miles South /West of where they had started. Police said they was in good spirit,unhurt just a little wet.Lady that found them took them to the police station in Bowling Green ,Mo.They gave them cookies and milk ,then sent them home with thier Parents. Al least it will be a Very happy Christmas for two Amish Families. When found they were about 15 miles from the river ,but going the wrong way.
