• Warrants detail alleged abuse Hailey Burns endured while captive

    Updated:

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - New warrants reveal the level of abuse that a Charlotte teen endured while being held captive in Georgia for more than a year.

    Michael Wysolovski confined Hailey Burns in an upstairs bedroom of his Duluth home telling her she'd be arrested if she left, documents said.

    Wysolovski reportedly controlled every aspect of his 17-year-old captive's life by keeping a food journal detailing how many calories she had eaten each day.

    He also withheld food from Burns if he thought she'd eaten too many calories the day before, according to the report.

    Doctors at the Atlanta hospital who examined Burns after she was rescued "determined she was suffering from malnutrition," according to warrants.

    Her parents told Channel 9 that she had lost 15 to 20 pounds.

    Burns disappeared from her Ballantyne home in May of 2016.

    The FBI responded to a tip and tracked her to a home in Georgia last weekend.

    Wysolovski is in jail under no bond on several state charges.
