A 12-year-old Naperville boy who had gone missing, along with his family's SUV, was found this morning unharmed at O'Hare Airport. Earlier reports of the boy reported on the boy's tendency to sleepwalk but officials say that played no role in this incident and that the boy drove away under "his own free will." Police considered his disappearance a runaway situation. Police were able to find the SUV's tracks in the snow and follow them. Said Police Commander Dave Hoffman, "The tracks were all over the place. It was pretty apparent it was an inexperienced driver."
