Austin American-Statesman - - SATURDAYBRIEFING -

MARSH HAR­BOUR — A fugi­tive U.S. teenager who has suc­cess­fully eluded teams of lo­cal po­lice and FBI agents might have slipped off the is­land where he al­legedly crash-landed a stolen plane nearly a week ago, po­lice said. Au­thor­i­ties are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a re­port that Colton Har­ris-Moore, dubbed the “Bare­foot Bandit,” has fled Great Abaco Is­land and was spot­ted on Eleuthera, about 40 miles to the south, po­lice of­fi­cials said. It was un­clear how the 19-year-old fugi­tive might have es­caped the is­land, but a power­boat was stolen Thurs­day from a Marsh Har­bour ma­rina on Great Abaco.
