And when the five-year-old boy was asked by the gendarmes what he was doing, he said that he was off to see Father Christmas.
Thankfully all ended well according to the Gendarmerie des Côtes d'Armor who said that a health worker first saw the boy and then contacted the gendarmes to tell them what had happened.
Officers knocked on the doors of local homes to find the young boy's parents, and fortunately his mother was quickly found who said that she had not realised her son had left the house.
Kenzo was reassured that Father Christmas knew where he lived and that it was best to stay indoors with his ideas for presents and wait until 25 December.
