7-year-old boy left alone on bus in Ypsilanti for hours

A 7-year-old boy spent several hours on a school bus alone Monday in Ypsilanti. Tiera Huntsman said she dropped off her son Braylen Martin's backpack off at Childs Elementary School about 10:30 a.m., only to find out he wasn't there.

"I'm thinking, 'Is he sure he got on the bus? Did somebody kidnap him at the bus stop? Something has happened,'" Huntsman said.
