German officials still seeking identity of 'Forest Boy'

Berlin - German officials are actively seeking the identity of a boy that showed up in Berlin after he'd wandered out of a forest.

While the teenager, dubbed "Forest Boy" in the media, actually emerged from a German forest last September, authorities did not publicly release a photo until just this week.

For many months police have been trying to unravel this unusual case. No one knows if the (estimated) 17-year-old boy has been telling the truth about his upbringing and/or if he has any family members still alive.

When he came out of the forest, the boy told police his name was Ray and that he had been living with his father, Ryan, in the forest for about five years. He said his father had recently passed away. He arrived in Berlin following his father's last instructions to "walk north" and "find civilization" in the event something happened to him. more
