a 25-year-old man Rudy Farias from Texas has been discovered alive, eight years after he was reported missing.

Recent revelations indicate that he had been subjected to years of sexual abuse and drugging at the hands of his own mother.

The details of this distressing case were shared by a community activist who had the opportunity to speak with the survivor

Rudy Farias, who was reported missing by his mother in 2015 when he was just 17 years old, was found outside a Houston church last week.

Farias informed Quanell that he had run away in 2015 but returned after two days.

The survivor allegedly shared that his mother had threatened him, warning that he would face serious trouble with the police if he disclosed anything about his circumstances.

It is reported that Farias claimed he had been confined to his home for the past eight years, unable to leave due to his mother's manipulation and control.
