Missing Mass. teacher, teen student found in W.Va.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - A Massachusetts schoolteacher found at a West Virginia motel with a 15-year-old boy whose parents had complained about the relationship is charged with kidnapping.

Police say 24-year-old Lisa Lavoie is being held without bond because kidnapping in West Virginia carries a possible life sentence. She faces a charge of enticing a child under 16 in Massachusetts.

The boy's mother had contacted the school earlier this month, saying she was concerned about the relationship between her son and an eighth-grade teacher. The teen was reported missing a few days later.

Officials aren't revealing where the boy has been taken, but say arrangements are being made to send him home. Police say he shows "no outward signs of physical abuse."
