Three missing sixth graders are back home after running away from home.

The three twelve-year-olds were found at a cement factory on Soi Tungkomtanman on Aug. 30. They were turned over to the Nongprue Police Station to be reunited with the families.

The three students disappeared after school Aug 28 with plans to travel to Udon Thani. They arrived at the cement plant around 5 a.m. Aug. 30 and called on family friend Sanong Jampathong, 53, and instead asked if they could stay with him while school was out.

Sanong declined and notified his boss, Thongdee Poonsrisawat, 50, who called the media later that day. Meanwhile Sanong posted the kids’ photos on Facebook to alert their parents and told them to come get their offspring.

The youths said they ran away because they wanted freedom to go out and not be hounded by their parents.
