WICHITA, KS (AP) - Kansas child welfare officials have found a lack of supervision at a military school where a 14-year-old California boy allegedly was tormented after suffering two broken legs.

However, their investigation has found no proof anyone there caused the injuries or denied the boy medical care.

The report by the Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services says there was "clear and convincing evidence" to support findings of neglect against a military advisor and two nurses at St. John's Military School in Salina.

It cleared another military advisor who called for an ambulance after seeing Jesse Mactagone's injuries.

St. John's said three independent investigations have concluded there was no physical abuse or medical neglect. If the three employees lose their appeals, they could be forbidden from working or volunteering in regulated facilities.
