An Australian man who cycled around Europe looking for his missing son has returned home to Sydney with the six-year-old boy.
Ken Thompson quit his job as deputy New South Wales fire chief and cycled across Europe looking for his son Andrew.
The boy was taken out of the country at the age of three by his mother during a custody dispute.
Mr Thompson has called on the Federal Government to overhaul child abduction laws and make it a crime to take a child out of the country without permission.
"Now it's not about finding a way to punish a parent who's taken a child, it's about finding a way to enable the authorities to help you find the child," he said.
