Nepal's "Buddha Boy" Disappears
The weekend disappearance of a Nepalese boy whom supporters hail as a reincarnation of the Buddha has sparked a nationwide search.
Supporters have showered 16-year old Ram Bahadur Bomjan with money and gifts for allegedly sitting in motionless meditation in the roots of a pipal
tree without taking food or water, or using the toilet, since May 16 last year.
The youth, dubbed "Buddha Boy" by the media, left the site in southern Nepal because the thousands of devotees who flocked there had disturbed his
meditation, media reported Sunday.

I had seen a story on this kid a few months ago. Now that he is missing, one wonders what is next.
If nothing else, it is an interesting story.
