MADRID, 14 Dic. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The British authorities have announced the location of a child who disappeared during a family holiday in Malaga in 2017 and who, after supposedly escaping from a spiritual community in France, was found this week in the town of Revel, near Toulouse.
Alex Batty, now 17, disappeared while on holiday with his mother and grandfather. His grandmother and legal guardian then told the BBC that she suspected that the boy had been transferred to Morocco, since his mother wanted to join a sect and take him out of school.
Batty finally reappeared this Wednesday in Revel, where he was seen by a driver who, worried, took him to a police station, according to police sources cited by British public television. According to the minor's testimony, he had been in France for at least two years, although it has not been revealed what all of his movements have been during the time that he has been missing.
Batty has not reported that he suffered mistreatment and the first examinations indicate that he is in good health.
