    Miles Diffey, 3, should have been in his class at Trealaw Primary School in Rhondda, ウェールズ, 金曜日に, but his parents were shocked when he turned up soaking wet at their front door instead.

    マイル, who is non-verbal, completed the 10 minute walk to his parentshome alone and in the cold at around 10.50am yesterday morning.

    A passer-by watched on in shock as she saw little Miles wandering the streets alone, and followed him to help ensure he returned home safely.

    His parents Georgia, 28, and William Diffey, 29, have revealed their fury at the school, who they claim are refusing to show them CCTV to explain exactly how their son was able to leave the premises alone.

    ‘I just feel like we’re being lied to and they’re covering their own backs’, Georgia explained.

    Rhondda Cynon Taf Council have since promised a full and through investigation into the circumstances surrounding Milesdisappearance from school.

    Miles went missing from his class at Trealaw Primary School on Friday but his parents say they weren’t notified until he turned up soaking wet with a stranger at their front door.

    Three-year-old non-verbal Miles was meant to be at the Rhondda Cynon Taf school until he was collected at 11.50am but, to his mother Georgia Wilcox’s surprise, her son had walked home alone from school by 10.50am.

    She said a woman saw the young boy wandering the roads of Trealaw before following him to make sure he got home safe.

    Georgia said: ‘She had no idea how long he had been out and found him on one of the hills coming down to our house.

    ‘He was soaked through his nappy was full and it seems he had been out walking for a while.

    ‘We were initially told Miles got out through a fence, then he left through the main gate and left the school at 10.35am which they saw on the camera but we now know he was seen at 10.30am out of the school so none of it makes sense. I just want answers.
