It was only when the youngest of three children asked about their big brother in the car that the 44-year-old from Braunschweig noticed that his son was missing. That was just before Bielefeld, as the police announced on Monday. 50 kilometers from the rest stop. Apparently, the boy must have snuck out of the car during a toilet break, the police said.
The father of the family called the motorway police at around 11:30 a.m. on Saturday. Due to a full closure after a car fire, he was also stuck in a traffic jam and could not remember the name of the parking lot.
