As Cadena SER has reported, the minor made the journey that covered the distance between his home and the Alfonso X El Sabio special education school, in Leganés, in a minibus along with four other minors and a monitor.
The child, according to the complaint filed by the mother, takes "medication that causes drowsiness." During the trip he fell asleep at the bottom of the vehicle and no one noticed his presence, so the driver left the minibus parked in the garages that the transport company has in Alcorcón.
When the minor woke up and found himself alone, he started honking the vehicle's horn. A security agent at the facility opened the doors for him and threatened to call the police, believing that he had broken in to steal. It was then that the minor began to wander the streets without knowing where he was.
Police officers were able to locate him after a call received from a supermarket clerk whom the young man had asked to go to the bathroom. Seeing that something was not going well, he asked the minor and he informed him that he was looking for the Alfonso X El Sabio school. When the agents located the young man, they called his father and he picked him up.
According to the mother in a Telecinco program, "this is the second time this has happened to her." "In January he left school, was bound for home and did not arrive. I contacted them and they had forgotten them on the route," she denounced.
