German girl bicycles to Poland to see her grandmother


BERLIN (AP) — German police say a missing 14-year-old girl has turned up safe and sound in Poland, after bicycling and hitchhiking some 400 kilometers (250 miles) to see her grandmother.

Lueneburg police said Friday that the girl, identified only as Nikola, set off from her rural town in northern Germany on Tuesday with her bicycle and a backpack.

Police searched the whole region, but found no trace of her until she appeared Thursday at her grandmother’s house in western Poland.

They say she was picked up by her parents there and is now home safely.
