Police on Sunday sent two Thai-Swiss siblings aged 11 and 12, who had run away from their Bangkok home since March 29, to the care of the Social Development and Human Security Ministry.
The two had fled their home after allegedly being scolded and beaten by their 37-year-old Thai mother and had lost their way after walking 20 kilometres trying to locate their father's residence.
The two kids were survivors of an incident last May when they and their two younger siblings aged 5 and 7 fell off their mother's apartment balcony leading to the deaths of the two younger siblings.
The brother and sister told police that they did not want to return to their mother. They were asked to seek police help on Saturday by Ronnasit Proeksayajiva, founder of the Ronnasit Foundation for Children and Women Falling Victims of Human Trafficking and Violence.
