A ten-year-old American tourist who went missing on 21 April from the Vatican Museums was found safe and sound four hours later in Via Veneto, some four kilometres away. The little boy had been visiting the museums with his parents, but got separated from them. His parents reported him missing to the police, who mobilised forces to search for the boy using a photo his parents had with them. But an extensive search of the museums and the immediate surroundings proved fruitless. The boy eventually turned up unharmed in Via Veneto that evening, having walked there under his own steam, asking passers-by directions to the American Embassy.
