In a case believed to linked to exam-related stress, a boy ran away from home on Tuesday, leaving his parents “worried sick”.
Matthew Jason Tjong, 12, a St Andrews Junior School Primary 6 student, was last seen at Boon Keng MRT station at 1.30pm that day.
His parents then began “combing Singapore frantically”, and an appeal also went viral on Facebook and Twitter, in which the Tjongs pleaded for information on their son's whereabouts.
At 12.28am today, popular blogger Mr Brown, who had joined in the appeal to find Matthew, posted that he “had been found and reunited safely with his family”.
When contacted over the phone at 1.30am, Matthew’s father said the police had just dropped off his son at their home.
