To me I think that no one knew the boy was gone because the boy probably be missing all the time so no one was worried. When you leave like that when people didn’t even worry about, that means a whole because that isn’t normal.

Fear reactions are made up of physical changes, feelings and behaviors. Children who experience fear are more likely to show us than tell us that they are afraid. They may do this by seeking reassurance, by trying to avoid the situation that makes them fearful, by becoming agitated or by becoming upset. If the situation that makes them fearful is one they cannot avoid they may try to get a parent, care or other trusted adult to deal with it for them.
