He wasn't 13 years old. And, "he" was really a she. Officials in Norway say a 13-year-old Czech boy reported missing in their country is actually a 33-year-old woman.

Police report the woman spent four months pretending to be a school boy. According to authorities, Barbora Skrlova was hiding from Czech authorities to avoid testifying as a witness in a child abuse case. Police say Skrlova shaved her head, bound her breasts, and managed to fool teachers and childcare workers. She'a been deported back to the Czech Republic.
