A girl who left home when she was 14 years old, has been found alive, living in an internet café.
24-year-old Xiao Yun left home 10 years ago after a family quarrel.
She was presumed dead by her family – but police found her on November 20 after a routine check at the Internet café in the wee hours of the morning.
Police discovered Yun was carrying a fake ID card and was taken to the local police station for questioning.
While at the police station she told police that she had been living at various Internet cafés for the past decade.
Yun also revealed that she was a major fan of the multiplayer first-person shooter ‘Crossfire.’
She told police she spent her days playing the game and slept mostly in cafes and bath houses throughout the province.
Yun also said she relied on handouts from those who befriended her at the cafés, she also said that she occasionally worked as a cashier to earn additional money.
Police fined the girl 1,000 yuan (7,351 pesos) and contacted her parents so they could reunite them with their daughter.
Her mother told the Quanjian Evening News that she had not changed her phone number since Yun left home in the hope that she would get in touch.
“I have a stubborn personality and a short temper, so I used to scold her. But it’s already been 10 years and now she’s an adult. I will never scold her again,” she said.
