Mannheim, Germany (dpa) - A 10-year-old boy who wanted to visit his grandparents in Lithuania hopped on a train to go there without telling his parents.

The journey ended after 200 kilometres when train staff alerted rail police after noticing the boy was travelling alone without a ticket, a police spokesman said Monday.

The boy spent Saturday night in a children's home before being picked up on Sunday by his mother, who had reported him missing shortly after his disappearance.
