(AP) - The father of an 8-year-old boy who skipped church and was found alone at a store has been charged with child endangering.

Blanchester police say the boy apparently walked on a busy highway to a Family Dollar Store about a half-mile from his home in April.

Police say Jeffrey Williamson told them he had assumed the boy had gotten on an evening church bus with four siblings.
