A British boy who went missing six years ago from a family vacation in Spain, has now been found alive in France.
Alex Batty was 11-years-old when he went missing and is now 17 when he was found walking along a road near Toulouse France by a motorist named Fabien Accidini.
Accidini recounted on the conversation the two had on the drive. He said, "He told me he was kidnapped by his mother five years ago in Morocco. After that he was in Spain. And that he had been living France for the past two years in a spiritual community."
Authorities have reported that Batty will return to England within the next few days.
A spokesperson for Greater Manchester Police said, "This is a complex and long-running investigation, and we need to make further enquiries as well as putting appropriate safeguarding measures in place."
