Missing Boy Found in Wall of Grandmother’s Home


Atlanta, GA 9/07/2009 04:00 PM GMT (TransWorldNews)


A missing boy was found in a small hiding place behind a wall in his grandmother’s Illinois home over the weekend. Authorities say 6-year-old Richard Chekevdia, who has been missing since 2007, was found in the small space with his mother, Shannon Wilfong.

Chekevdia and Wilfong disappeared in 2007 after custody disagreements with the boy’s father. Other hiding spots were found in the home, including one in the floor and one behind a dresser. Details on how the pair was found have not been released.

Wilfong is charged with felony child abduction while her mother, Diane Dobbs, is charged with aiding and abetting.

Illinois State Police Master Sgt. Stan Diggs says Chekevdia appeared to be very social, talkative and polite.

The news comes 2 weeks after another abducted child, Jaycee Dugard, was found alive. Dugard, 29, was found in a hidden shack behind her abductor’s home in California on August 26, 18 years after her kidnapping at age 11. She has two daughters with her kidnapper, Phillip Garrido.
