Des Moines, Ia. - A five-year separation of a mother and her 10-year-old son was near an end Wednesday.

Lloyd Comstock, 10, was to be sent by bus to Fort Morgan, Colo., to his mother, Mrs. Adasell Comstock Dennis, who had been searching for him since she watched him go away with her permission with her divorced husband five years ago to visit relatives for three weeks.

Lloyd never returned. The mother traced the boy through relatives of his father, whom she had divorced shortly after the baby was born, and this week she located him here in a home for boys, where he had been for more than a year. The mother has remarried since.

Juvenile authorities had placed the boy in his home when economic conditions prevented his living with his father. They helped the mother locate the boy.
