Another case of a boy deciding to go with a friend and get up to mischief perhaps? No explanation as to why they went AWOL? The skateboard is a dead give away, probably spent the afternoon down at the skate park with dubious characters. No helmet visible in the pic either so definitely not a safety conscious individual. No well behaved child goes missing for more than a few hours before seeking help from police or somebody to find their way home.
Still, I could be totally wrong, being from a different generation and all and having no idea what constitutes as normal behavior for teenagers nowadays.
