Missing Teens May Want It That Way

Sponsored by:

Police in Antioch are wondering today if two teen-age fishermen missing since Sunday are just hiding out to avoid legal problems. Searchers have been looking for 17-year- olds Adam Batchelor and Brandon Paschall since a friend reported they failed to turn up after a Sunday fishing trip.

Their 12-foot boat was found hauled up on a beach near the Antioch Bridge. It had not overturned in the water. Contra Costa County Sheriff´s Captain Scott Daly says the two may be missing because that´s what they want.

Officials say Batchelor failed to appear in court last week in a stolen-car case and Paschall may fear he´ll be tied to a stolen boat being used by Ryan Sikes. He´s the youth who reported them missing. Sikes was arrested Monday after authorities found an outstanding burglary warrant and located a stolen boat at his home.
