Remember The Mysterious 'Forest Boy' Who Showed Up In Berlin? Here's What He Looks Like

Last year, a mysterious young man emerged from the forest near Berlin, Germany and told those who found him that he had been living in the woods for five years with his father.

The boy, aged around 16-18, had only come back to civilisation after his father died. He knew nothing about his own background, only that his mother’s name was Doreen, his father’s as Ryan, and his own is Ray. He had been living in the wilderness since the death of his mother in a car accident.

While Ray was said to be adapting well to life in society (enjoying television and bowling), Berlin Police are still struggling to put together any details of the background of the boy. At this point, they have little idea if his story is real, let alone who his parents were or why they ended up living in the woods.

In a bid for answers, the police force have released pictures of Ray on their website, and are making a fresh appeal for information. The pictures were taken in September just after the boy was found in Berlin:
