Teen has secretly lived in Walmart in Texas for 4 days
13:45, 14 August 2014, 3336

AKIPRESS.COM - walmart A 14-year-old boy, with a history of running away to abandoned properties, decided to live inside a Texas Walmart instead of staying with some relatives.

Employees at the store in Corsicana were shocked to discover the child in their store on July 30, police said in a statement issued Wednesday.

He was discovered 54 hours after he ran away from home. He built secret makeshift lairs behind rolls of toilet paper, constantly changed his clothes and wore diapers to avoid being seen running to the bathroom, reports NY Daily.

Walmart spokesman Brian Nick told the Daily News they are investigating the situation and are not sure exactly how long the boy was in the building. He said as soon as the manager discovered the child they contacted authorities and were concerned for his safety.

The child had been staying with his aunt because his parents, who live in the neighboring city of Rice, were out of town, police said. On July 28, he fled his aunt’s home while she watching television and she called police.

The mother told police the boy had a history of running away – usually to abandoned houses, creeks or businesses, police said.
