An 11-year-old South Carolina boy drove 200 miles from Simpsonville to Charleston to meet a man he met on Snapchat.
According to Charleston Police, the little boy was spotted by Officer Christopher Braun around 12:30 a.m. when he pulled up next to the police cruiser.
He told Officer Braun he took his brother’s car and drove three hours from Simpsonville to Charleston to live with a man he met on Snapchat.
The child told the officer his father’s Insignia tablet dropped the GPS signal and he was lost.
When he lost the GPS signal he also lost the address to the man’s home and couldn’t recover it because Snapchat deletes messages after they are read.
Jesus took the GPS!
The child told the police officer his name, his father’s name and his father’s telephone number.
Officer Braun contacted the boy’s father, who was in the process of filing a missing person’s report with the Simpsonville Police Department.
The father and his other son drove to Charleston on Monday to pick up the 11-year-old boy and the vehicle.
The tablet was placed in evidence
