Latest news about the meditating boy in Nepal are that he has disappeared. The boy has been meditating for about 10 months now, supposedly without eating or even drinking. Now updated – video shots after the dissappearance
He was last seen on Friday. His clothes were reported to be found near the tree. It is possible that he was kidnapped by the Maoist or other armed groups.
I’ll continue to look for more information on the now missing boy.
It will be very unfortunate if he’ll never be found and we won’t know the truth about his meditation: if it was really as said or it was just another hoax.Sources:

Accroding to a BBC article, local committee that manages the meditation site has released a video of the boy that was shot several days after the boy got missing. Here’s an excerpt from the BBC article
The chairman of the Om Namo Buddha Tapaswi Sewa Samiti (ONBTSS), Bed Bahadur Lama, told reporters that he and his colleagues had met Bomjan about 3km (2 miles) south-west of his meditation site in Bara district on Sunday.
He said Bomjan had spoken to them for half an hour.
“He said he would reappear after six years. He has asked monks to perform prayers in the meditation spot,” Mr Lama told reporters.
“I left because there is no peace here… Tell my parents not to worry,” Mr Lama quoted Bomjan as saying.
The alleged meeting is the first news of the boy’s possible whereabouts since he disappeared on 11 March. District authorities say they cannot confirm the sighting.
