November 17, 2010 15:28

A 5-year-old from the religious town of Elad sparked panic and a large scale search on Wednesday morning after using public transport to travel from his home to Bnei Brak.

All ended well after the young boy was found on a bus in Bnei Brak and was returned to his home safely.

The child's mother noticed he had gone missing at around 6:30 a.m., Supt. Dudi Harush, of the Rosh Ha'ayin police station, told The Jerusalem Post.

"From what we understand, he headed towards Bnei Brak using public transport, alone. A bus driver spotted him and contacted a local police station. All stations had been put on alert by us beforehand," Harush said.
