A small boy from China who was abducted by a stranger has now been rescued hundreds of miles away from home
A six-year-old boy from China who was abducted by a stranger has now been rescued hundreds of miles away from home. The bone-chilling surveillance tape had captured the child getting abducted in broad daylight by a stranger after he casually approached the child on the streets.
According to reports via Daily Mail, the CCTV footage managed to catch on camera how six-year-old Chuan Chuan got kidnapped last week on a street in Kunming while he was busy playing video games. In the video, the stranger can be clearly seen approaching the boy and talking to him briefly, before eventually carrying him away on his shoulders.
As per reports by Kunming TV, the incident took place on Thursday last week in Baofeng village in Kunming, China. Chuan, who was captured wearing a green top and red trousers, was playing video games with several other children outside a supermarket when he was approached by his alleged kidnapper.
The video footage shows the abductor speaking to the kid for a few minutes before he returns in a while and is seen carrying Chuan in his arms and walking away from the scene in as discreet a manner as possible. Chuan's father Mr Long was asked if he knew who the kidnapper was, but the street vendor had no idea about the alleged abductor.
Long told the police officers that his son had been left alone to play that day because he had to ride his tricycle around the city to sell fruit. He filed a missing person's report for his son after he failed to turn up home, and also revealed that in his desperation, he waited outside the supermarket every day, hoping that his son would return to him at some point or the other.
As per reports, the police found the little boy at around 11 pm on Saturday in another city called Baoshan, which is roughly 250 miles away from Kunming. the little kid told the police officials that he had spent two days with a 'strange uncle' who had bought him a toy car and played with him next to a river.
The boy has since been returned to his mother, who is indeed quite glad to have her son back in her arms. Mrs Li told Kunming TV after getting her son back, "I thought I had lost him forever. I cried every day. Now he has been found. What a relief."
