MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A sheriff's office in Minnesota says a
13-year-old cancer patient and his mother who fled the state to
avoid chemotherapy have returned.
The Brown County sheriff's office did not provide any details
Monday but said a news conference would be held at the county seat
of New Ulm.
Daniel Hauser and his mother, Colleen, had been due to appear in
court last Tuesday for a hearing that could have resulted in a
judge ordering chemotherapy.
They missed the court appearance, and the search for them had
focused on southern California and Mexico.
Doctors say Daniel has a cancerous tumor in his chest that's
likely to kill him without chemotherapy. His family prefers
so-called natural healing methods.
