Associated Press

SEATTLE — The mother of Colton Harris-Moore, Pamela Kohler of Camano Island, issued a statement Monday saying she’s glad he’s safe and no one was hurt during his capture in the Bahamas.

The statement was issued through her attorney in Seattle, O. Yale Lewis:

“I am very relieved that Colt is now safe and that no one was hurt during his capture. I have not yet been able to speak to him. It has been over two and a half years since I have seen him, and I miss him terribly. I hope that it will be possible for me to see him sometime soon. However, I don’t yet know when that might happen.”
