Toddler terror Noah Joel gave him mum the slip to cycle half way across town to visit his gran in hospital.
The determined two-year-old packed his favourite sweets in his rucksack and pedalled the toy bike across Hameln, Germany, while his mother thought he was playing in his room.
He was only stopped after more than three miles on the road when police received reports of a lost child criss-crossing the same road several times - wearing just socks.
A police spokesman said: "He didn't really know the way to the hospital. But he blamed that on his bike for not being fitted with sat nav."
Noah was returned to his horrified mum who had frantically called police after spotting that both he and his bike were gone.
"He is a very determined, confident little boy. He was worried about his grandmother and wanted to do something about it," explained a family friend.
