Boy Found, Kidnapping Suspect Slipped Away
11-year-old Adam Kirkirt was recovered safely on the evening of January 21. Police in Georgia say they found him coming out of the woods near a gas station in Emerson.
Police were called to the scene when witnesses reported seeing Adam and convicted sex offender Frederick Fretz at the gas station, purchasing a gallon of water and some candy.
Police say when they spotted the pair, Adam ran toward them as Fretz fled into the woods.
Massive Search Continues
He reportedly believed he was on a camping trip with Frederick Fretz, his accused abductor, and was surprised when he learned he was the subject of a large hunt.
Fretz's escape into the woods was short-lived; he was arrested in Cartersville, Ga on Sunday afternoon.
