A seven-year-old boy who, with his family, has been held hostage by Somali pirates for the past three months has been discovered safe and sound.

Jeremy Bloodlow, seven, was found with no apparent injuries on a barren island in the Indian Ocean 75 miles southeast of Mogadishu. He was discovered by Interpol agents who had been scouring the region since January after Somali pirates had boarded the Bloodlow family yacht and abducted the boy, his mother and step-father.

There never were any ransom demands and at this point, there is no clear indication why the boy was released unharmed.

Inspector Philippe Girard of Interpol stated that Jeremy seems to have weathered the incident quite well. "The pirates seem to have taken to the lad," said Girard. "Before they released him they presented him with a black eye-patch, a stuffed parrot and an autographed peg-leg."

When asked about the status of the boy's parents, Inspector Girard added that Jeremy made them walk the plank.
