The Forest Boy

The Forest BoyYou've probably heard the story of an English–speaking boy who emerged after five years living in a German forest. Police believe the story is credible although highly unusual. They are now trying to retrace the steps of the boy in an attempt to find his father's body.
They are also investigating reports that the teenager may have criss-crossed Europe during the five years he says he spent living rough in forests with his father.
The boy, who is estimated to be 17, says his name is Ray but has little other idea who he is. He arrived in Berlin on September 5, carrying only a rucksack, tent and sleeping bag. He claimed his father Ryan had taken him into the woods south of the German capital five years ago after his mother Doreen died in a car crash, and they had lived there ever since.The Presurfer
