If you've lived in the woods for years then of course you can easily travel and survive through it. We are not talking about a random kid trying to survive in the woods, this is someone who has learned all the right skills, and kids learn very fast.
I also think it's possible that the kid is hiding something and might be lying about living in the woods.
Berlin (CNN) -- The story of the so-called Forest Boy -- a riddle that has perplexed people in Germany and elsewhere for months -- is a lie, police in Germany said Friday.
The 20-year-old hoaxer, who claimed he was 17 and lived in the German woods for five years, is actually from Hengelo, in the Netherlands. He never lived in the forest and made his way to Berlin some time last year, police said.
He had been declared missing in September when he was 19. But because he was an adult and could determine where he wanted to live, there was no further investigation by Dutch authorities, police in Germany said.
