The Texas Missing Persons Center announced that a young man who disappeared from the sight of his family about 8 years ago when he was a teenager has been found, according to CNN news , Monday.
The center stated that the young man, Rudolph “Rudy” Farias, had disappeared in 2015 when he was no more than seventeen years old, while he was walking with his dogs in northwest Houston.
According to Rudolph’s mother, someone called the emergency number when her son was found outside a church, with cuts and bruises.
While the Missing Persons Center said that the young man was severely abused and severely beaten, apparently.

The center said in a tweet on Twitter: “After 8 long years (of disappearance), Rudy is safe.”
The tweet added: “Please continue to pray for Rudy’s family while her son recovers in the hospital.”
It is not yet clear the circumstances of the young man’s disappearance, and where he was throughout the period of his loss, as his mother said that he uttered some words before he fell into a deep sleep, expecting that his recovery journey would be long.
According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in the United States, approximately 360,000 reports of missing children were submitted to the FBI in 2022, but that toll may include numbers missing from previous years.
