Germany - Teen emerges from woods, Sep'11 - Hoax - Robin van Helsum
Police say they're investigating the story of an English-speaking teenager who appeared in the German capital last week saying he had lived the last five years in the woods with his father.
I hope this boy has other family and that he can find them. He must be so scared and alone.
