MOULTRIE -- A 15-year-old Monticello, Fla., boy was abandoned at the Jack Rabbit Foods on Georgia Highway 319 Southeast by his 27-year-old sister Thursday afternoon.

The boy told a witness at the store and police that he was left at the gas station after arguing with his sister from Tallahassee, Fla.

Reports said the witness initially did not approach the boy because he was not bothering anybody. When he was questioned, he stated he was left behind and was upset and scared.

While he was riding with his sister, reports said the two began yelling and arguing with each other. He was let out of the car when he said he needed to use the restroom. She dropped him off at the Jack Rabbit then drove south on 319 toward Thomasville.

Police were able to contact the boy's father, and he told police the woman was "mean and spiteful" toward the boy, reports said. He also told police she would probably not go back to pick him up if she was able to be contacted.

Reports said the boy was taken by a Colquitt County sheriff's deputy to the Thomas County line where Thomas County deputies would take him to meet relatives at the Thomasville Wal-Mart. The sister had not been contacted at the time of report.
