Missing: One Buddha Boy

Nepali police began hunting on Saturday for a teenaged boy who some people believe is an reincarnation of Buddha after he disappeared from the site where he had been meditating for almost 10 months.

Theory 1: He became enlightened and transmuted to a different plain of existence.

Theory 2: He had an existential crisis and said "fuck it" and is playing in a grunge band in Kathmandu.

Theory 3: He died. Hell, no food and water since May.

Theory 4: Michael Jackson traded for him in exchange for George Harrison's portion of the Beatle's catalog.

Theory 5: There was no Buddha Boy. He was a holographic projection designed by the Nepal Visitors Bureau to drum up tourism.
