A 14-year-old boy who had been missing since March 19 in Koga, Ibaraki Prefecture, was found unharmed on Tuesday morning.
According to police, the boy was spotted walking along a street by a pedestrian at around 10:30 a.m., Sankei Shimbun reported. His photos had been circulated in the area since he disappeared while shopping with his mother at around 7 p.m. last Thursday night.
Police said the boy was wearing the same clothes as when he disappeared. He was weak from hunger but otherwise unharmed.
Police said the only thing the boy has told them so far is that he spent most of the past few days hanging out in parks. He was taken to hospital for a checkup on Tuesday afternoon.© Japan Today
