Portugal – daily news – child lost in Ourém

A 3-year-old boy was found after being missing in a 4 hour search in Ourém, in northern Portugal. On the map, you can see Lisbon bottom-left. Castelo Branco is top-right, and Leiria top-left. This area is roughly the region of the recent forest fires in Portugal. You can see that Ourém is very close to Fátima.

The boy had been watching his father cut herbs when he decided to go and look for his grandmother.

The alarm was raised at 8.30pm on Saturday, 24 June 2017. After a search by 50 firefighters plus GNR with dogs, the boy was found around 00.30am on Sunday morning, about 1km away from his home.

He had become confused as to where he was and went onto a balcony of an empty house that was similar to his home.

He is safe and well.
