7-Year-Old Boy Who Went Missing For 7 Days Found Alive Inside Thick Forest After Parents Dumped Him There As Punishment

A 7-year-old boy who was declared missing for seven days, has been found alive in a forest after he was left there by his parents as punishment. Yamato Tanooka was left in a wooded area on Japanese island, on Saturday afternoon. After six nights alone in the forest and a mass search by police and military personnel, Yamato was finally found. Military personnel found the boy in a hut during an exercise around 5km from where he is thought to have gone missing. 

"He was incredibly calm considering he had been missing for seven days. He didn’t panic at all"  said a doctor. His parents said they made the boy get out of the car on a mountain road because he was misbehaving. They had initially claimed he got lost while the family were picking wild vegetables.

Feeling remorseful for what he did, father Takayuki Tanooka told reporters outside the hospital in Hakodate: "first thing I did was apologise to him. We’ve raised him in a loving family, but from now on, we’ll do even more to love him and keep a close watch on him as he grows up," he said.
