    German Forest Boy Baffles Police

    A 17-year-old boy who claims to have lived in a forest for years has perplexed police in Germany.

    The teenager wandered out of the forest with no knowledge of his identity other than that his first name was Ray. He told police that he had roamed the woods for five years with his father until he died, then followed a compass north until he reached Berlin.

    This is not convincing. He would be in much worse shape physically and mentally had he actually spent his childhood homeless, roaming through the wilderness. What did he and his father eat? Where did they stay during the harsh, extremely cold winter months?

    As a young child- he would of died.
    If stranded at an older age(12-when ever); it's possible.
    Iffy but possible.

    Yea, and there was also one guy in a ceratin news article years ago who claimed to have not eaten anything for 10 years

    You cannot believe everything that people say. People can make up some outlandish stuff...

    He also would not be educated. If he was German born, thene where would he have received his education to speak English? It's very unlikely that he would be speaking fluent English without some kind of education.

    I guess this is the birth of a legend that will be handed down in history as The German Forest Boy.

    Exactly. Two years ago, there was another case with a woman who had lived 12 years in a Swiss forest undiscovered.

    BERN, Switzerland — A German woman missing for 12 years has been found living in the woods on the outskirts of the Swiss capital with nothing more than an umbrella and tarpaulin for shelter, police said Monday.

    The 52-year-old woman, whose name was undisclosed, appeared to be healthy after living in the simple shelter near the community of Bolligen for the past year.

    Even the ranger who makes regular checks of the woods had failed to notice her before a hiker told police this month that he had seen a woman living there, said Juerg Mosimann, spokesman for the Bern police.

    Bolligen's Mayor Rudolf Burger said he was told about the woman on Thursday and found her the next day in the makeshift tent she had constructed.

    "She answered our questions and told us she didn't want any contact with her family," he said.

    She conversed normally, but she also spoke of a mission that she had to fulfill, Burger added. He declined to elaborate.

    Mosimann said it was unclear where the woman lived before she moved to the woods.

    She is still living there, but the Bolligen Citizens Community that owns the woods will soon tell her she will have to leave, said community clerk Andreas Kohli.

    "There's no point in waiting for months," Kohli said. "We are looking for an appropriate place for the woman in cooperation with the social services of Bolligen and the government of Bern."

    The woman was reported missing in 1997 in a village near Potsdam, Germany, outside Berlin. She was identified with the aid of an information system shared by the 25 member nations of the so-called Schengen accord enabling passport-free travel in Europe.

    People can be quite irrational. What's irrational to us can be perfectly rational and reasonable for them, though.

    I could believe that someone took their kid into the woods and they lived there for years. But the fact the kid doesn't know his name or anything else is really strange.

    I knew my name as a small child, so how would a teenager go his whole life without knowing his identity or history?
    Proud to be Germanic.

    Even though my ancestry is English, Germany is my favorite country.

    That would imply that the hunter-gatherer populations that lived in these parts of the world 10,000 years ago were basically homeless people, and that the same would go for all primitive tribes of today. I do not think so. You seem to forget that the condition of homeless people is as good as always exacerbated by mental problems; otherwise they would not be homeless in today's society.

    And what do you eat if the supermarket is not an option? Well, let's see:

    Supper for one


    See, he does not even have to use a knife.

    That is exactly how I clean quail when in the field. That way I don't have to carry feathers, bones and entrails back to home/camp. I'm a lot less brutal than that guy, because now I carry bird scissors on my belt, I can and have cleaned them without knife or scissors though.


    I think it very possible for this young person to make it in the woods.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.
