Police have found a boy wandering along the side of the M6 after he lost contact with his parents who are believed to have abandoned a number of days ago, the boy was left with no food, drink or money has been left to fend for himself after becoming separated from his family. 

Officers have taken him to a place of safety until social services can pick up the shocking case whereby the boy has been left behind at such a young age in freezing conditions.

The shameful act will most likely mean the boy may never be reunited with his family as they disappear into normal life within the UK.

Officers from the Central Motorway Police Group (CPMG) said they had been called to reports of a pedestrian on the motorway on Wednesday night.

When they arrived they found the boy who had been split up from his parents.

On Twitter, police wrote: “Officers sent to reports of a pedestrian on the M6 #Birmingham.

“We found a young boy who had illegally entered the UK. He was split up from his parents a few days ago, and doesn’t know which country they’re in. As police, our priority is ALWAYS to protect life.

“It’s impossible to imagine how scared someone would be, not knowing where they are, not knowing where their parents are, unable to speak the language.

“We’ve taken him to a place of safety with food and water until social services can come and take him to care.”
