The mystery of the teenager found in Coventry who might as well 'have fallen from the sky'
A mystery teenager who turned up in Coventry not knowing his own name, age or nationality might just as well have "fallen out of the sky", a charity has said.
The young man, who is not able to describe what has happened to him, is thought to have fled a house in London.
Believed to be in his late teens the boy was discovered after he heard someone speaking a language he knew at Pool Meadow Bus Station and asked them for help.
According to the Coventry Telegraph the person he spoke to put him in touch with staff at a local refugee and migrant centre.
All the boy had in his possession when he was found was a letter from a solicitor saying he was “stateless”. It is now thought he could be a victim of human trafficking. According to the newspaper the boy speaks Urdu, Hindi and basic English.
Paul Wheeler, from the Coventry Refugee & Migrant Centre, told the Coventry Telegraph it was as if the man had "fallen out the sky".
"He doesn't know his own name or his country of origin. We don't know how long he has been in the UK - all we know is that he tells us he got on a bus in London and arrived in Coventry," he said.
According to reports the boy told staff at a safeguarding unit that he had been kept in a house in London, was not allowed outside and did not got to school.
