A mother whose child went missing, told police that her baby grew into an adult in less than a minute and ran off, police in Liberia said.
The incident unfolded in Foquelleh, Bong County, on Tuesday, according to the mother of 2-month-old Smith Freeman.
16-year-old Lorpu Kollie told investigators that she and her child were on their way to a farm when Smith, who was strapped to her back, began to talk and ordered her to put him down.
“As soon as I put him down her grew into an adult,” Kollie said.
The baby’s father, Watson Freeman, said that his girlfriend complained of stomach pains all through the pregnancy.
Watson Freeman described the mysterious disappearance of his son as amazing and awesome, saying that he did not experience any fear about the incident.
However, the child’s grandfather believed that the Smith was kidnapped by members of the Dark World. Police have urged locals farmers to be on the lookout for Smith.
