Speaking to ABC13 News on the phone, Rudy’s mother explained that 911 was called after he was found unresponsive outside of a church. Rudolph “Rudy” Farias’ body was covered in bruises and cuts. There was blood in his hair. His mother told the media outlet she suspected her son had been beaten and abused.
The 17-year-old was reportedly walking his dogs near Tidwell and Park Drive when he vanished. He was reported missing when his family recovered the dogs, but could not find him anywhere.
In 2015 when Rudy vanished, it was reported that he was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and anxiety. Authorities at the time asked for the public to help with locating the missing team as he hadn’t been taking any of his medication. So, it was possible he was disoriented. On March 10th, the search for the teen was suspected while authorities gathered more information on the situation. On March 12, just two days later, the search resumed. Sadly, however, it only lasted another day before ending.
This is definitely a miracle. Rudolph ‘Rudy’ Farias has been found after he was missing for 8 years. He left his home in Houston, Texas (at age 17) to take the dogs for a walk in 2015 and never returned. Apparently some good Samaritans found him outside of a church the other day.… pic.twitter.com/bLz4ofD8Kn
