Spanish police have found the body of a child believed to be that of a German boy who had been missing for several days.
The five year-old was on holiday near Cordoba with his mother, who herself was found wandering dehydrated, in a state of shock and covered with scratches on Tuesday.
She left Germany a week ago, and locals saw her fishing with her son at a nearby lake on Sunday, and on Monday she asked her neigbours for help after her car broke down. The next thing anyone knew was when the woman was found in the middle of nowhere asking where her son was.
Friends of the family in Germany say the woman and her son regularly took holidays together. The father and family members have arrived in Spain and are helping the police with their inquiries.
