Description: Crime Beat Juvenile Delinquent Eludes Capture TOM SAWYER Leads Authorities on Musical Wild Goose Chase St. Petersburg, Missouri ñ Authorities are asking the public for help in finding the young delinquent Tom Sawyer, a 14-year-old boy last seen near MacDougalís Cave wearing overalls and a straw hat. Sawyer is wanted for a number of petty misdemeanors, including tricking his friends into whitewashing a fence, crossing swords with the schoolmaster, and talking back to the Reverend in church. Tomís Aunt Polly, interviewed at her home, said, ìIím at my witís end trying to keep that young hooligan under control.î According to law enforcement sources, Polly has no idea where the young reprobate might be, but his girlfriend Becky Thatcher may know more than sheís willing to tell. Sawyer is believed to be accompanied by another youthful renegade, Huckleberry Finn. Rumor has it that Tom and friends plan to bring their hijinks to the Lincoln Community Playhouse in a show they call The Adventures of Tom Sawyer: The Broadway Musical (book by Ken Ludwig; music and lyrics by Don Schiltz), a tale of thrilling escapes, comedy, and inspiration for the whole family.
