Berlin police release photo of 'forest boy'

2012-06-13 13:04

Berlin - Berlin police have released the photo of a teenage boy who wandered into the city almost nine months ago saying he had been living for the last five years in the forest with his father.

Police said on Wednesday that despite intensive efforts they have been unable to determine who the English-speaking boy who calls himself "Ray" is and are appealing to the public for help.

Ray says he was born in 1994 and his mother, Doreen, died in a car accident 12 years ago. He says his father Ryan died last August and he buried him in the woods where they'd been living, then wandered into Berlin and turned up at city hall.

The father's body hasn't been located and police say they have "serious doubts" about the whole story.

    His mother died when he was 12 years old, not 12 years ago!
