For many Minnesotans there is just no way to avoid the recent spell of hot and humid weather. While some have the luxury of staying indoors in air conditioned comfort, many others aren’t so lucky.
It has been nearly a year since a 5-year-old boy went missing during one of the hottest days of summer. Last July, Scott Meyer snuck out the front door of his house in western Wisconsin and ran off. Because he is non-verbal with autism, hundreds turned out to try to find him. A search volunteer and his dog discovered Scott the next day after he’d spent a night in the nearby woods.
