Parent: 7-year-old missing for hours after being dropped off at wrong spot by school bus driver

LAUREL, Md. -

A seven-year-old boy says his bus driver dropped him off at the wrong spot on Monday.

For nearly three hours, Tyshon Evans was all alone walking along Contee Road in Laurel. After a frantic search, Robin Godfrey finally found her frightened and cold son.

The boy was trying to get to his aunt’s apartment after they say a substitute school bus driver dropped him off at the wrong stop.

Evans says he told the driver that it was not his stop and asked to use his cell phone, but the 7-year-old was told no.

Evans is a second grader at Bel Pre Elementary School in Aspen Hill. Through a special program, Montgomery County Public Schools buses have been picking him up and dropping him off where he and his family temporarily live in Laurel.

Godfrey says there has never been a problem until now.

Evans was taken to and treated in urgent care. He is shaken and still scared, but is expected to be okay.

His parents are upset and want answers from Montgomery County Public Schools. An MCPS spokesperson says they are looking into the matter.
