On June 29, after getting beaten by his father, a frustrated boy with surname Miu decided to runaway from home.

Unlike most runaway children, no one would expect a teen boy’s escape journey lasting nearly a month, until he was found by the local police last Saturday.

“At the beginning I had nothing on my mind. I just wanted to run away from my parents,” Miu told Yunnan.cn on Wednesday.

He said he relied on family remedies for survival.

“In the first few days, it kept rainy and I got a fever,” Miu recounted his experience. “Then I remembered my family boiling dandelion as medicine, so I collected a broken bowl and a lighter to prepare a herbal tea as a medicine.”

After recovering from illness, Miu said he made travel plans to head to Chongqing Municipality, which is nearly 500 kilometers away from his hometown.

In his detailed recount recorded by the police, Miu told his unbelievable experiences on the way.

“I slept either on wet leaves in the wilderness or on straws in farmers’ warehouses,” Miu was recorded saying.
The boy also reported that he slept in an abandoned truck that was left on the side of the highway after a traffic accident.
Asked if he was scared, the boy said, “No, I was not afraid and I had a good rest.”

According to the police, when Miu left home, he had no money or food with him. However, the boy said he survived by picking fruits from trees and buying cheap street food with money he earned selling recyclable materials.

Last Saturday, just as Miu said he was getting used to his journey, a group of police officers on patrol found him.  
After learning about the boy’s situation, local police contacted Miu’s father, who traveled overnight to pick up his son.
