San Jose, Ca
13 year old Jesus loved his celebrities from shows like "Drake and Josh" and "iCarly." So he did what any star-struck teenager longs to do. He hopped a bus for Hollywood.
It seems he had been saving up money his parents gave him for snacks and sodas, and may have used that money, about $40 to buy the ticket and fund his little jaunt away from home.
He really wanted to be famous.
Well here's your 15 seconds of fame, my lil child. Enjoy it!
See, he's autistic, and his family was in a panic when they found that he was not home at 6:30 am.That caused a fearful and distraught family to ask police to search for the boy. Jesus has the mental capacity of a 6 - or - 7 year old, so we can understand the panic that insued.
Turns out Greyhoud survailence found him on camera, alone, purchasing the ticket. He then boarded the bus around 10 am and he was off on his adventure!
Once police figured out just exactly where he was going, they notified LAPD to meet him there while San Jose PD were on their way.
Greyhound found the bus he was ridin' on and the police took him into prtective custody. They don't believe anyone else was involved, but the want to make sure.
"When he gets home we're just going to get on with life after suffering like this, not wondering what happened, crying all day and going into a panic," said Guillermo Garza, the boy's father. "Maybe we'll bring him on a trip to Great America or have a big celebration."
