'Barefoot Bandit' says his mother has died


SEATTLE (AP) -- A convicted thief who became widely known as the teenage "Barefoot Bandit" as a result of a series of car, boat and plane thefts says his mother has died.

KIRO-Radio reports Colton Harris-Moore said Wednesday that his mother, Pam Kohler, died Tuesday night.

Harris-Moore, now 25, had earlier spoken of cryogenically freezing his mother with the hope that medical advances would allow her to be revived and her lung cancer treated.

Harris-Moore is serving a six-year prison sentence at the Stafford Creek Corrections Center and is set to be released this summer.
