Second missing boy found in Denmark

Both of the missing boys who were caught and treated roughly by a security guard in Malmö last week have now been apprehended and taken in by the Danish social welfare agency, news agency TT reports. 

The second boy, a 12-year-old, was found today on a different Danish island than the younger boy and both of them will receive care from the Danish social welfare agency from now on.

The boys have been in the media spotlight recently when a film clip showed the youngest of them being held down by a security guard at the Malmö central station.

The boys were brought back to the care home from which they had run away, but a week ago, in conjunction with a visit at the Swedish Migration Board in Malmö, the boys disappeared again. They apparently do not speak Swedish.

Aftonbladet had previously reported that the boys absconded from their care home in search of a half brother who they were separated from when they came to Sweden.
