Teen runs away from home to meet up with his 42-year-old “soulmate” from World of Warcraft

kaneAndrew Kane, 16 years of age and living in Barrie, Ontario, walked up to his folks one morning to ask them to give him a lift. To where? To a motel to meet up with a 42-year-old woman he met while playing World of Warcraft. Naturally, no parent in the right mind would drive their teenage son to a motel - to meet up with a much older woman no less. Kane then decided that he didn't need a lift and went to meet his "soulmate."

Kane then decided that he didn't need a lift and went to meet his "soulmate."

The soulmate, Lauri Price, a 42-year-old mother of four, had apparently flown from Texas to Toronto and drove up via rental car to meet up with the teen. The two have been exchanging messages for over a year, some of which involved "overt sexual discussions." "All they had to do was read the chat logs and they were immediately concerned," Kane's mother said about her son's relationship after running through her son's chat logs. "He said she was his soulmate."

 

Kane also asked if he could spend the rest of the holidays with Ms. Price, something that was definitely out of the question. He left home at 2AM, taking with him a laptop that was a Christmas gift from his folks, and left a note to his parents explaining what he did.

 

“I don't know how to explain it to you, but this will show you not only the commitment we have to each other, but also that your fears of her are ill found,” he wrote. “Like I said, she offered to meet with you. I got in the way of that. What person who would do me harm would be willing to meet with you?”

 

Andrew Kane was found by the police two days later in a Future Shop in Orillia. Kane had apparently told his companion that he was 20, but since the age of consent up in Canada is at 16, Price will not be facing any criminal charges.
