Australian boy, 12, flies to Bali alone after argument with mum

Australian boy, 12, flies to Bali alone after argument with mum

After a quarrel with his mother, Emma, the 12-year-old boy decided it was time to do something drastic, and a vacation to the family's favorite holiday destination, Bali, seemed like just what the doctor ordered.

Drew, who had only brought a single backpack with him on the trip, checked in for his flights using a self-service terminal, the reports said.

Drew apparently did not like his mother's response and made a decision to go on the trip anyway - by himself.

Drew searched the internet for airlines that allowed 12-year-olds to fly unaccompanied and booked himself a ticket and a hotel room.

Drew was able to fly to Bali and stay in the country for days without being picked up.

Thunder-Jazz, 1st Ld-Writethru,476
We know that it's going to be another war next game and we just need to be tough but at the same time mentally ready for that. The Utah Jazz blew out the Oklahoma City Thunder 113-96 in Game 4 to take a surprising 3-1 lead in their first round series.


"Drew" was ingenious enough that he realized he could fly alone on multiple Australian airlines from Sydney to Denpasar with just a valid passport and student ID, "A Current Affair" reported.

Drew took his scooter, telling his parents he was going to school, but instead took it to the train station the Sydney airport.

He used self check-in to avoid dealing with staff at airports. Though, an airport employee did ask to verify his age.

"They simply requested for my scholar ID and passport to show that I'm over 12 and that I'm in secondary college", he stated.

On the Indonesian island, he booked into the four-star All Seasons Hotel, telling staff there his sister would be joining him later.

Woman fined $500 for taking Delta apple through customs
She said she wasn't hungry, so she put her apple in her carry-on bag so she could eat it on her flight home to Denver . An apple and an honest mistake have saddled one Delta passenger with a $500 fine and a big bureaucratic headache.


However, his four-day vacation was not as carefree as he planned.

His mother reported her son missing after discovering he never made it to school, and when she found out he travelled overseas, she immediately went to Bali to retrieve her son. Emma immediately jumped on a flight to go get him.

On A Current Affair, Emma said his previous attempts to leave the country had failed and that she had contacted the Australian Federal Police and Border Force (AFP) to flag his passport.

The boy said: 'It was great because I wanted to go on an adventure'.
