Police picked up the child in Jestetten – close to the Swiss border.

The boy refused to give German police his name, but they judged by his accent he was from Sankt Gallen and contacted their neighboring colleagues – who confirmed they were searching for him.

His parents picked him up at a German day care centre and took him home. Police say they don’t know why he ran away.
