Ozzy, Alan Jackson help save autistic boy

Rescuers in Twin Peaks, California used an autistic boy's favorite music to lure him from the woods after he disappeared from school. Rescuers and local teens drove around the area blasting Ozzy Osbourne, Alan Jackson and the boy's father's voice to locate him in the San Bernardino National Forrest.

    I am autistic and as a child I was really bad for wandering. Cant tell my mum how sorry I am for everytime I scared the living daylights out of her and for how people judged her becuase of my behaviour. I spend a lot of time grieving for the pain I caused my parents when I was small. Im glad turned out ok and the boy was brought home safe. I hope people is incredibly hard, socially when your autistic and when we are young we dont understand the dangers of our wandering when we are seeking solitary. I hope people are understanding with both the boy and his parents and good job finding him all of you! Bet his lesson will be learned and this wont happen again once he understands the scare he gave his folks.
