Authorities Search For Fugitive Floater
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
In his novel "Old Man," William Faulkner describes a prison inmate washed downstream in a flood. He spends the rest of a novel heroically struggling upstream to return to prison. We recommend that novel to Bruce Carney, who was tubing in far western Maryland. He was separated from friends and washed down river. Sheriff's deputies found him across the river in West Virginia. He was returned to Maryland and charged with violating probation.
It's MORNING EDITION.
