VIDEO: Missing Boy Found Behind False Wall

Clayton County, Ga., police rescued a 13-year-old boy, who was reported missing by his mother in 2010, Saturday morning. He was found behind a false wall in his father's home, reports WSB-TV.

Clayton County police Sgt. Kevin Hughes said officers first went to the home near Jonesboro about 11 p.m. Friday to conduct a welfare check on a child.

"Upon initial arrival, responding officers made contact with several occupants at the location who denied having knowledge of any information concerning the victim," Hughes said. "After a brief search of the premises, the officers left without locating the victim."

At about 2 a.m., police said they received a second call about the boy and returned to the house. When officers arrived and after several minutes of questioning adults in the house, officers found the child hidden behind a panel behind a linen closet in an insulation area in the garage.

"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," Hughes told Winne. "The victim was found behind a false wall within the residence."

Police arrested five people at the home, including the boy's father, 37-year-old Gregory Jean, and stepmother, 42-year-old Samantha Joy Davis, and charged them with false imprisonment, cruelty to children and obstruction. The other three people arrested were juveniles, Hughes said.

Those people should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I am sure that the juveniles that lied to the police only did so out of fear for what would happen to them if they told. I Hope they are now safe.

Give em the max. I can't imagine what the victim and the mother went through.
