Missing child found hiding under bed after 8-day search

A 10-YEAR-OLD boy who sparked a province-wide police search was discovered hiding under his wooden bed eight days after his mother reported him missing in Borongan City, Eastern Samar.

The mother told local police that her child went missing on Friday morning, October 15, 2021, after he was invited by a friend to play outside their house.

According to the police, they had exerted efforts to locate the child but to no avail.

When the mother was cleaning the boy’s bedroom on Saturday morning, October 23, she was surprised to find her child hiding under the bed.

The child went into hiding because he was afraid to be scolded after committing a minor infraction, according to the information released by Eastern Samar Governor Ben Evardone.

Authorities are investigating the incident. (SunStar Philippines)
