These kinds of stories are not something you come across that often. And after you watch this video, you'll agree with us. This is a very unusual story with a happy ending, so you might wanna grab those tissues.

This talented 17-year-old running back had it all, or so it seemed – an incredibly successful sports career, friends and family, and good grades, but right in the middle of the successful season, one day his couch and his assistant were suddenly faced with the fact that he'd gone missing. Lakel, or as his friends tend to call him, Lucky, packed his bags and got on a bus to a small town where his grandma lived.
The search for him lasted more than eight days – his coach and fellow team members did the best they could to locate their friend. They searched homeless shelters, asked the police for help.

Nobody knew what exactly happened to him – he just disappeared and was nowhere to be found. The team lost three important matches and didn't make it to the playoffs.
Lakel was finally found on Facebook. He said that he felt sorry and embarrassed for letting his team down, because with his help they would have made it to the finals. Regarding his disappearance, he said that it was due to personal problems – he felt he needed to distance himself from everything.
Now he's back in the team, and he's truly hoping that they'll be back on their feet in no time.

Good luck, Lucky!
