Doubts about whether missing teen was really missing as horrifying new details emerge

Doubts about whether missing teen was really missing as horrifying new details emerge

Neighbors claim they have seen the man on numerous occasions.

Doubt has crept in if Rudy Farias, found eight years later, was ever actually missing as horrifying accusations have emerged regarding the man's home life.

Houston TV network ABC-KTRK reported that neighbor Kisha Ross and her family were shocked to see that 25-year-old Rudy Farias was believed to have gone missing almost a decade ago.

Ms Ross claims that he has seen the man on numerous occasions.

“He used to come in my garage, chill with my cousin, son, and daughter,” Ms Ross told the news outlet.

Civil court records obtained by the New York Post showed that Farias’ mother lives on the same street as Ms Ross in northeast Houston.

“That boy has never been missing,” the neighbor said.

She added that sometimes he ‘would go to the park by himself’.

Ross' cousin, Broderick Conley, said they would hang out often and have ‘laughing good times’ together.

The outlet also reported that new allegations have also emerged.

Activist Quanell X says Farias told him he had been sexually abused and heavily drugged by his mom for years, ABC-KTRK reports.

He added that he ran away in 2015 while walking the dogs at 17 but returned two days later.

Farias reportedly told Quanell that his mother threatened that he would get into trouble with police if he said anything, adding that his mother wouldn’t let him leave his home.

When asked why he didn’t leave, Farias reportedly said that his mother would give him drugs, and he was too fearful to go to the authorities.

The activist told reporters that the man recently told his mom to respect his boundaries, adding he took her credit card and left.

In a tweet, police said detectives could not discuss specifics or comment on whether the claims being made public are legitimate.


Last week, police found Farias outside a church in Magnolia Park with bruises and cuts all over his body and blood in his hair.

Farias was taken to hospital after 911 was called when he was found unresponsive outside a church, just a few miles from his family’s home.

"What we do know is at the time of his recovery, a good Samaritan located him unresponsive and immediately called police and 911," the family said in a statement released through the Texas Centre for the Missing.

"My son Rudy is receiving the care he needs to overcome his trauma, but at this time, he is nonverbal and not able to communicate with us."
