"I just do the most stupidest things sometimes," Angel Gort tells WSVN. The Florida 11-year-old was reported missing by his family around 10am Tuesday. As police were searching his Hialeah neighborhood with bloodhounds, WSVN's helicopter was flying over the scene. "We were just kind of searching here waiting for our next hit on this story when we spotted the child," Ralph Rayburn says. Angel hadn't gotten far in the two hours he was missing; the copter spotted him lying on the roof of his house. After police convinced him to come down, he explained that he has ADHD and ran away because he was upset with his mom. “My mom is embarrassed,” Angel says. “I didn’t mean to cause any trouble." He says it's the last time he runs away. (More missing child stories.)
