Missing British Boy Alex Batty Found in France, Escaped ‘Spiritual Community

The Reappearance of Alex Batty

Alex Batty, an 11-year-old British boy who vanished in 2017 during a holiday in Spain with his mother and grandfather, has been discovered alive in France, as confirmed by prosecutors.

After six long years of disappearance, authorities revealed that Alex, now 17, was found safe near Toulouse, France, having fled a ‘spiritual community.’

The Mysterious Disappearance

In 2017, Alex, along with his mother, Melanie, and grandfather, David, traveled to Spain for a holiday. However, they did not return home as scheduled, prompting a significant police investigation into what was believed to be Alex’s abduction.

His grandmother, Susan Caruana, suspected that Melanie and David had taken Alex to live an ‘alternative lifestyle,’ rejecting mainstream schooling.

Discovery in France

French prosecutors disclosed that Alex emerged near Toulouse, escaping from a rural community nestled in the Pyrenees foothills. He reportedly disclosed his identity to the authorities, leading to confirmation of his true identity as Alex Batty.

Accounts indicate that he recounted his journey calmly after being picked up by a lorry driver who later alerted the police.

Unraveling the Mystery

Investigations suggest that Alex had been part of a ‘spiritual community’ with his mother and grandmother, residing primarily in caravans and tents.

When Alex vanished, authorities believed his family might have attempted to reach Melilla in Morocco from the Port of Malaga, with both his mother and grandfather considered suspects in his abduction.

Ongoing Investigations

Greater Manchester Police, initially involved in the case, indicated that Alex, his mother, and grandfather might have attempted to flee to Morocco.

Currently, Alex’s mother and grandfather remain at large and are sought in connection with his abduction. Investigations are ongoing as authorities gather more details surrounding Alex’s six-year disappearance.

This report is based on the latest developments in the case and may be subject to updates as the investigation progresses.
