Kids elope to marry in Africa

Kids elope to marry in Africa

Three German children have been caught trying to run away in order to marry in Africa.

Young romantic Mika, six, and his seven-year-old girlfriend Anna-Bell were so attracted with each other as they planned an escape to tie the knot in warmer climes.

Dragging along Mika's sister Anna-Lena, aged five, the kids packed three suitcases filled with food, swimming costumes, a lilo and even sunglasses.

The idea for the romantic trip began when Mika told the two girls about his recent holiday in Italy.

In the early hours of 2009, the children left their house in the suburbs of Hannover, and took a tram for the central station. From there, they planned to go to the airport and finally emigrate to Africa.

As they waited for the train to the airport wearing their holiday gear, they caught the attention of a guard who contacted police.

Two officers managed to convince the young lovers that they would struggle to get to Africa without money or a plane ticket.

When asked why they were going, groom-to-be Mika explained his seemingly simple plan.

"We wanted to take the train to the airport, and then catch a plane, then we would unpack, and get married once we arrived," he said. "Then we wanted to go for a little holiday."

Fiancee Anna-Bell added: "We wanted to get married there and enjoy ourselves."

Mika's mother, Annabell Sievert, said she could not believe they had tried to elope overseas.

She said: "I was shocked. I thought I must be watching a film. We tried to find them, but couldn't. There are a lot of places they could have wandered to."
