FROM THERE.

YOU MUST HAVE:

PASSED HIM UP SOMEWHERE

ON THE ROAD:

FROM SAN FELIPE.

IF I'D PASSED

HIM ON THE ROAD,

DON'T YOU THINK I'D

KNOW MY OWN TRUCK?

I'M SURE

YOU WOULD, SEOR,

BUT WHAT IF IT:

WENT OFF THE ROAD?

THERE'S NO PLACE

HE CAN PULL OFF THE ROAD

WITHOUT GETTING:

STUCK IN THE SAND!

THEN HOW COULD:

YOUR TRUCK BE LOST?

IF IT WASN'T LOST, WOULD

I BE COMING TO YOU?

THAT IS A GOOD:

QUESTION, SEOR.

UH, TELL ME

16 YEARS OLD,

WITH MY TRUCK?

MIGUEL...

WHAT'D HE SAY?

IT'S NO USE.

IF HE GETS ANY BETTER,

THE DOCTOR:

TAKE YOU TO THE PLACE

WHERE HE WAS FOUND.

WAS IT YOUR TRUCK

THAT MADE THESE TRACKS?

LIKE THAT ON THE REAR.

THEN GOT STUCK.

YEAH. THEN

WHERE'D IT GO?

STRAIGHT UP IN THE AIR,

IT LOOKS LIKE.

LOOK, THAT TRUCK HAD

A RADIO AND A HEATER,

BUT IT DIDN'T

HAVE WINGS.

NOW, ARE YOU GONNA FIND

IT OR AREN'T YOU?

LOOK, SEOR.

I AM PAID:

TO KEEP THE PEACE.

IF SOMEONE STEALS,

I TRY TO CATCH THE THIEF

AND PUT HIM IN JAIL,

LIKE IT SAYS:
