Boy had researched airlines which allow passengers to travel without letter from parents.

An Australian family were left terrified when their son was reported missing, only for it to transpire that he had stolen the family credit card and travelled alone to Bali. 

As reported in 9 News, 12-year-old Drew* had a heated argument with his parents. 

“He doesn’t like the word ‘no’,” his mother said. 

He subsequently told them he was going to school. However, Drew had actually stolen the family credit cards and, after tricking his grandmother into giving him his passport, travelled alone to Bali. He was able to do so having researched Australian airlines which allow minors to travel with only a student ID and passport, rather than requiring a letter from a parent or guardian.
