POLICE have found an eight-year-old boy who had become lost in a forest in the Burgos (Spain) mountains.
The boy had been playing with a group of children but wandered off as night started to fall at the town of Rio Seco-Las Machorras, according to Guardia Civil sources.
The incident happened last Sunday, August 4, when at about 8.40pm Guardia Civil were notified the child was missing. A patrol arrived to find the boy’s parents and volunteers already carrying out a search.
Concerned the child might be lost during the night in the middle of the forest, the police patrol was relieved to find the boy about four kilometres away on a track that leads to the source of the Río Seco.
After making sure he was unharmed the officers gave him a ride home in their official car.
