STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - A newspaper reporter found two missing boys - who it turns out were just skipping school - after he was sent to cover their disappearance in central Pennsylvania.

Centre Daily Times reporter Shawn Annarelli says the brothers, age 7 and 9, were supposed to board a bus to their charter school Tuesday morning but didn’t.

State College police posted their picture on Twitter about an hour later and Annarelli began poking around in some bushes near a playground after he heard some noise.

He found the boys hiding under a blueberry bush about 90 minutes into the search, and called 911 after hearing one of the boys say, “They found us.”

Police Lt. Keith Robb says the boys “didn’t want to go to school today.”
