The 5-year-old Alabama boy who was taken at gunpoint from his school bus and held hostage since Jan. 29 in a bunker is home and doing well, family members said Tuesday.

The boy’s great uncle said in an ABC interview: “He’s happy to be home, and he looks good,” The Associated Press reported.

Jimmy Lee Dykes, the 65-year-old reported to have stormed the school bus and shot the bus driver, was killed Monday after Federal Bureau of Investigations officials mounted a rescue.
