>> Yamato Tanooka smiling and out of the hospital on Tuesday after six days missing in Japan. Telling reporters he's fine and looking forward to getting back to school. Tanooka was found dehydrated with hypothermia at a Japanese military base last week. Close to where he disappeared after his parents left him by the side of the road, a punishment for throwing rocks at cars.

Local media say the boy was crying so hard he walked the wrong way trying to follow his parents' car. He survived for six days without food in a hut on a military training field, drinking water from a tap. Tanooka's disappearance set off a massive search with police in Japan's Self-Defence Force soldiers, as well as international media attention and waves of disapproving comments on social media.

Police say they won't file charges against Tanooka's parents.
