OZARK, Ala. (AP) - A court-appointed attorney says two banks are accepting donations for the southeast Alabama boy who was held hostage in an underground bunker for six days.
Ozark lawyer Joe Adams says the Commercial Bank in Dale County and Friend Bank in Dothan are taking donations for a conservator account set up to benefit Ethan Gilman of Midland City.
The account was established with court oversight to make sure any donations go to benefit the 6-year-old boy.
A man identified by authorities as Jimmy Lee Dykes held Ethan in an underground shelter after killing his school bus driver on Jan. 29.
FBI agents stormed the bunker, rescuing Ethan and killing Dykes.
