And the news is good.

Detectives reunited the 15-year-old with his family at 5 p.m. today.

Westport Police thank the public, their law enforcement partners and the media for helping bring Max back to Westport.

    I like to gamble. 100 to 1 you’ll never read another word about this story on this blog.

    Follow the $$$

    • Absolutely correct. This is a personal matter now. Most Westporters care simply that he is back home. Details are none of our business.

      I also have no idea what your final sentence means, nor am I interested in finding out.
