THE family of a missing 14-year-old Dutch boy believe he could have run away to Spain.
Basiel de Gouw from Spanje, Holland, has been missing since January 4.
A spokesman for the family said Basiel took toiletries and a Spanish dictionary with him and was last seen carrying a large backpack.
He added: “Everything about Basiel’s disappearance implies he planned it.”
Basiel left for school on Monday morning at 8:00 on a bike, but never arrived.
Searches in Holland have been ongoing since.
