11-Year-Old SC Boy Drives 200 Miles to Meet Man He Met on Snapchat


CHARLESTON, S.C.- Authorities in South Carolina reunited an 11-year-old boy with his family Monday after police said he took his brother's car and drove nearly 200 miles to meet a man he met on Snapchat.

Authorities discovered the boy after he pulled up next to a Charleston police officer around 12:30 a.m. Monday to say he was lost, according to officials. Police said the boy was alone in the car, which he identified as a vehicle belonging to his brother.

The boy told Braun that he became lost after his father's tablet computer lost its GPS signal. Authorities said he'd been following directions to a home in Charleston, but when he lost the signal, he lost the address he was traveling to because Snapchat messages disappear after they're read.
