German police found a teenage boy Friday, more than two years after he was reported missing, while searching the apartment of a man suspected of child pornography offenses, according to multiple reports.
The boy, 15, was found in a closet as authorities searched a home in the German city of Recklinghausen, CNN reported. A spokesman for police told the news network the boy had been reported missing two and a half years ago.
Two men who were in the apartment when the boy was found, identified as the 44-year-old suspect and an older man, were taken into custody Friday, according to CNN. In a statement obtained by the news network, police said the 44-year-old was charged with “a serious sexual offense” while the other suspect was released.
