(CNN) -- Two Germans who ran away from their retirement home to attend a heavy metal music festival had their plot foiled by police.
A police patrol found the two elderly men at 3 a.m. on August 4 on their way to Wacken Open Air festival after staff at the retirement home in Dithmarschen, northern Germany, reported them missing the evening before.
