Last August, Ryan Jones went to a commissioner of Missouri, in the United States, to report the disappearance of his son Braedence, at the age of 6 years.
For five months, this disappearance has remained unsolved.
But, recently, the police received an anonymous phone call explaining that the child was hidden in the house of the mother and of her father-in-law.
On Tuesday, police in Camdenton raided the property of the mother, located in LaClede County.
Digging the places, the forces of order have rediscovered the little boy who was sequestered in the attic.
Woodrow Ziegler, the father-in-law, aged 41 years, had plastered the entrance that led into the attic, and had placed a rug and furniture in front of it.
The mother, 30-year-old and her companion have been charged with kidnapping and forcible confinement, before being arrested.
As for the child, he has been reunited with her father. They are both very happy.
