Missing Welsh Boy, 5, Discovered Under Beanbag Chair

"A 5-year-old Welsh boy whose disappearance sparked a massive police search turned out to be napping under a bean bag chair, his parents said.

Andrew Lorey, 29, and Samantha Thomas, 28, of Penlan, Wales, said their son, Jenson Lorey, vanished from the family`s living room Monday night while his father was in the kitchen and his mother was at the gym, reported Thursday."



This story is shocking beyond comprehension; I thought beanbag chairs had gone out of style decades ago.

These Welch cops make the Keystone Kops look like the FBI, they should be given a reality show.

After more than an hour of searching, the couple`s daughter, 6, discovered her brother sleeping beneath the beanbag chair.

I don`t think the kid could have slept through all that commotion; he was probably stifling his laughter at the stupidity of the police.
