Miracles do happen.
A 13-year-old boy, who was reported missing approximately four years ago following a visit to his father’s home in Florida, was found behind a fake wall in an Atlanta home.
Clayton County police arrested the boy’s father, Gregory Jean, 37, and stepmother, Samantha Joy Davis, 42, and charged them with false imprisonment, cruelty to children and obstruction, WXIA reported. Three other people also were charged in connection with the incident, WXIA said.
Neighbors were in shock when they heard the news. A woman who lived across the street said that they were really nice, open people:
They were really nice people, very open, they said come over anytime you want. The young man didn’t seem under any distress. I guess you never know what’s behind closed doors.
The site continues:
Police said they went to the home in Jonesboro twice to look for the boy starting Friday night after someone — police didn’t say who — asked them to check the home.
They didn’t find the boy during the first visit, and several people there told officers that they didn’t have any information about him, police said in a press release.
But for reasons police didn’t immediately explain, officers eventually returned.
While police were searching the house a second time, the boy contacted his mother by phone and she told police to look behind a false wall, WXIA reported, citing police.
The boy has finally been reunited with his mother. We are keeping him and his family in our prayers.
