Stephanie told BuzzFeed her mum deleted Pokémon Go because they didn't know the login details anymore, and, as a result, "Kyle obviously thought it was best to leave home".

It turns out Kyle is fine and has since returned home after running away to his grandparents' house.

Stephanie hasn't spoken to her brother much since the incident, but she thinks the whole thing was "hilarious".

She also added that Kyle now has the Pokémon Go app again.

So hopefully he won't be running away again anytime soon.
