Cancer-stricken Minnesota teen, mother return home on their own
The weeklong search for Daniel Hauser — the 13-year-old refusing court-ordered chemotherapy — came to an end Monday when Brown County authorities announced he and his mother were back in Minnesota.
The mother and son received help from California attorney Jennifer Keller, who contacted authorities Sunday and told them the Hausers were ready to return home from the Los Angeles area.
The Hausers had skipped a court hearing in New Ulm over Daniel's treatment last Tuesday and apparently had been trying to reach Mexico in search of alternative treatments for his cancer. Their absence touched off a nationwide search that eventually involved the FBI, federal customs agents and other law enforcement agencies in California.
