6-year-old girl walks on the highway: ‘On her way to grandma in Berlin’

Several motorists on the German A3 called the police when they saw a child walking along the highway that evening. The girl was walking on the highway towards Regensburg, according to the Facebook page of the German Police Mittelfranken.

When a patrol car from the Erlangen traffic police arrived at the said site, a driver had already stopped to hand the girl over to the officers. She was barefoot, wearing only shorts and a T-shirt.

When the police asked her why she was walking on the highway, the lady confidently replied that she was on her way to her grandmother in Berlin – more than 440 kilometers away. The girl was safely handed over to her parents. They say they were about to organize a search for their daughter together with neighbors.
