A 10-year-old boy, apparently with high expectations of himself, has been found in Switzerland after running away from his home in northern Germany for fear of telling his parents about what he considered a bad mark in his school report, German media reported on Saturday. The local newspaper quoted German federal police as saying that the child had been afraid of showing his marks to his parents even though the worst grade on the school report was a "3" - a solid "C" in international terms. He even had a valid ticket on him for the duration of the journey to the Swiss city of Basel, according to Spiegel Online. Train personnel had alarmed federal police on Friday evening about a boy traveling by himself. His parents had already told local police in their hometown of Schleswig that their son had gone missing. Needless to say, the parents were grateful that their son was found and were to be reunited with him on Saturday.


When did you try to run away? How far did you get?
