92-Year-Old Woman Escapes From Nursing Home For Secret Tryst With Her 87-Year-Old Boyfriend

A nursing home in Norway launched a search for a missing 92-year-old woman last month, only to discover that she was on holidays with her 87-year-old boyfriend.

Staff at the Vilberg home in Eidsvoll, near the Norwegian capital of Oslo, became alarmed when they found the woman's mobility frame abandoned in the car park and contacted the local police.

It eventually emerged that she had been maintaining a long-distance relationship with her 87-year-old boyfriend since being admitted to the home and had travelled by car to Stockholm, 570km away, for a romantic holiday with him.

After a two week break, she is due to return to Norway and one of the staff at the home described her adventure as "a touching love story".

“Imagine not being able to go on a romantic holiday just because you’re past 90. The lady did nothing illegal, but she caused some uneasiness for us, because she never announced she was leaving,” she added.
