Police say an eleven-year-old boy who went missing from the Lake Macquarie area on Sunday has been found.

A public appeal was launched early Monday morning with police saying Thanakorn Deesud hadn’t been seen at his Cameron Park home on Salamon Rd, since about 6.15pm Sunday.

Officers searched surrounding bushland without any luck and shared a photo of Thanakorn on Facebook asking for help.

Less than five hours later, police say they want to thank the public after Thanakorn went back home.

  1. So he went missing from a suburb of Lake Macquarie, but somehow Police at Port Macquarie were involved with thanking people less than five hours later after he went back home? How did he get to Port Macquarie and back in under 5 hours?

    • Good question Matthew. We don’t know where Thanakorn went but yes he went missing from the Lake Macquarie area. Got the ‘Port’ and ‘Lake’ mixed up sorry. Luckily another reader picked up on it straight away 🙂
