Boy is found in Makkah after being separated from his family during Umrah
An Emirati boy who went missing in Makkah, while performing Umrah last week, has been reunited with his family.
The family of Khaled Al Darmaki, 17, said he was found in good health in the Saudi Arabian city of Makkah and thanked authorities for reuniting them with their son.
On Saturday, Khaled, who is believed to suffer from mental health problems, was circumambulating the Kaaba — one of the steps of Umrah — at the Grand Mosque with his family when he disappeared.
The family, who are from Khor Fakkan, alerted authorities, who searched for the boy at nearby hospitals. He was found four days later although no further details were released.
