Daily Mirror – Kidnapped Alex at 18: My new life 

Alex Batty has spoken to the Daily Mirror about his life back in the UK after six years on the run in Europe, revealing he hopes his mum and granddad do not get caught by police after taking him abroad. On the eve of his 18th birthday, Alex, who now lives with his Gran in Oldham, tells the paper he doesn’t expect to hear from his Mum and doesn’t want to because he doesn’t want her to get caught. He reveals he’s started a computer programming course, been on a few dates, and already enjoyed some birthday celebrations.

The teenager was abducted six years ago and in December was found in rural France, having abandoned the off-the-grid lifestyle pursued by his mother and grandfather. “It feels good to be back at home,” the teenager is quoted as saying.
