Kid Goes Missing, Dad Blames Xbox, Call Of Duty15 year-old Brandon Crisp, from Barrie, Canada, ran away from home last Monday, and hasn't been seen since. Why'd he run away? Brandon's father, Steve, says "He left because we took his Xbox away". Seems Brandon was "addicted" to Call of Duty, and the decision to confiscate his "Xbox" sparked the runaway. His father now fears the worst:
My personal feeling is that he's met someone online through this game. As a parent, you fear the worst when you don't hear anything for seven days.
Most runaway kids return home within 24 hours; Brandon's been missing for a week now, and hasn't been seen or heard from by friends or family. No leads yet in Barrie teen's disappearance [thestar, via GamePolitics]
