The mother, on noticing the absence of her boy and their car quickly alerted the police authorities around 12:25 am the following morning. Then she went looking for her missing son.

She found him in a lay-by without an injury, at the Autobahn close to Dortmund. The boy had turned the hazard lights on and also went ahead to place a warning triangle at the back of the car.

When the police arrived at the spot where he parked the Golf, the boy now teary-eyed said, "I just wanted to drive a little bit."

According to the authorities, the boy said he started to feel uncomfortable when he got to 87 mph on the motorway and decided to pull over.

While speaking, the mother said he already had some experience with vehicles. He had driven go-karts and bumper cars on the family property.

It's good to know no one got injured, neither was any property damaged.
