Boy missing for 4 years found hidden behind fake wall

IT has been an emotional reunion for a 13-year-old boy and his mother after police found him hidden behind a fake wall in his fathers home.

Nine News reported the young boy who had been missing for four years was discovered by police when they were called to the Clayton County home on Saturday to conduct a welfare check on a child witnesses reported seeing at the house.

The boy was reported missing after visiting his father in 2010 when the man refused to return him to his mother.


Police arrested five people at the home, including the boy’s father, 37-year-old Gregory Jean, and a 42-year-old woman, charging them with false imprisonment, cruelty to children and obstruction.

The other three people arrested were juveniles.

A Clayton County judge denied bond Sunday morning for the father and stepmother.
