The recent update is Francis explained in an interview on Sirius XM makes the story even wilder: he left his village without saying a word to anyone.
“It wasn’t exciting because I didn’t know where I was going! I didn’t have a map. I couldn’t even tell them goodbye, because when you say, ‘okay, I’m leaving’, the first question is ‘where are you going?’ and I couldn’t tell anybody where I am going, so I couldn’t say goodbye to nobody. I just go visit my family. I stayed with my mom in my village for like three weeks. I was, like, looking at them like sometime like, this might be the last time that I’m seeing them. Because, you know, some people go there and some never come back, they died.
Basically I knew that if I tell them, no one will accept that. I always have crazy dream, they always saw me as very ambitious, like over high, and I was like, I’m not gonna tell them, they know that people go there and someone die..
Interviewers: What did you tell them?
Interviewer: You just disappeared?
After three weeks he called and his family’ reaction was like;
“I left, and after three weeks I called, and they were like, you were scaring us… I was like, no, I’m good, I’m in Morocco…”
