BOISE -- Boy Scout leaders said today they were investigating why an Idaho teenager was left behind after tumbling nearly 700 feet during a hike with his troop on Mount Borah.

Amanda Garner said her 14-year-old son Colton Garner had stepped off the trail Friday to go to the bathroom then fell while reaching for a backpack he had accidentally kicked off a ledge.

Share Troop leaders thought he had skipped ahead as they descended Idaho's highest peak and didn't start searching for him until they reached the bottom of the mountain, she said.

The teen spent the stormy night in the wilderness and was found covered with scrapes about 17 hours after his fall.
