Woman presumed 'Dead' found alive in Internet café after 10 years
A woman has been found living in an Internet café 10 years after she went missing.
Missing for a decade, it's alleged she has been living and playing games in the cafes since 2005.
She was finally found by police officers on Nov 20 after a routine check on an internet cafe, reports The Strait Times.
The woman, who was carrying a fake ID card, was taken to a local police station where she revealed that she had been living in Internet cafés for the past decade.
She is said to be a particular fan of the game CrossFire , and relied on gifts and occasional cashier shifts at cafes.
The police fined her £5,000 (Nearly 2 Million Naira) and contacted her parents so they could be reunited.
Her mother told the Qianjiang Evening News she had not changed her phone number since her daughter left home.
"I have a stubborn personality and a short temper, so I used to scold her. But it's been 10 years and now she's an adult. I will never scold her again," she said.
