ATLANTA, Ga. – A father's search for his biological son ended when a Georgia detective called to tell him about a teenage boy police say was confined to his bedroom for years with little food.
In an interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Tony Wawrzynski said he hadn't seen his son, now 18-year-old Mitch Comer, since the child was 3 year old.
After learning from a detective that police believe Comer was abused for years in his suburban Atlanta home, Wawrzynski can't hold back tears. He says he had no idea where the boy was since his girlfriend and the child left the Arizona home they shared 15 years ago.
A grand jury has indicted the teen's stepfather, Paul, and mother, Sheila Comer, on charges of cruelty to children, false imprisonment and kidnapping.
