A young boy who went missing four years ago was discovered, alive and well, hidden behind a false wall when police responded to a call at an Atlanta home Friday.
The child, who lived in another state, was reunited with his mother Saturday. He went missing in 2010 after his father reportedly refused to return him to his mother.
"Upon initial arrival, responding officers made contact with several occupants at the location who denied having knowledge of any information concerning the victim," Clayton County police Sgt. Kevin Hughes told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "After a brief search of the premises, the officers left without locating the victim."
"While at the location during the second call, the victim was able to establish phone contact with his mother and she in turn passed on additional information to the officers on the scene," a Clayton County Police spokesperson told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. "The victim was found behind a false wall within the residence."
