GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- The 12-year-old Boy Scout rescued after spending four days alone and lost in the rugged North Carolina mountains left the hospital today in Greensboro.
Michael Auberry was being treated for severe dehydration and what his father called "frost nip."
Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital spokesman Doug Allred says Michael left just before 1 p.m. with his parents and was in good condition.
Scores of searchers with trained dogs and heat-sensing helicopters scoured the area for the missing Scout through the weekend. He was found just before noon on Tuesday.
