Paul Ezekial Fagan, 10, had been missing for 14 hours when Polom found him hiding in some bushes near his grandmother’s house at 7 AM last Friday. The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office had been searching for Fagan last night with the help of search dogs and helicopters, to no avail.[twitter-follow username=”waynedupreeshow”] “He’s looking at me and I’m thinking, ‘Could this possibly be this kid? Is this really happening?’ It was a very surreal moment,” he told TODAY.com. “When I saw him, he looked not only tired, but he looked scared he might be in trouble. He’s 10 years old and he’s a smart kid — he knew he was in a little bit of trouble for what he had done.”
Polom took Fagan to some cops nearby, with cameras rolling, and reunited him with his grandmother and family.
