Police found a boy with cerebral palsy, who had fled from beatings and drinking parents
The disappearance of a 13-year-old Rostislav from Poroshkovo in Perechyn district was kept secret by his parents for nearly two weeks until a doctor came to the village and noticed that he was missing. She also called the police. In less than a day, the boy was found... at the railway station. He was going to flee to another region.
Rostik suffers from cerebral palsy, walks and talks with difficulties. When the parents would be drinking, the fugitive says, he had to bring firewood from forest to heat the house where his seven brothers and sisters also lived. But the boy ran away not from work but from constant beatings. When his arm ached unbearably and he asked his mother to call the doctor, he only heard in response: "let you hurt." The boy would always return home reluctantly. He would frequently ask to spend the night at relatives or friends and eventually decided not to return home at all...
The disappearance of the boy was reported by the doctor who had come to do prophylactic examination of the sick child. As it turned out, Rostik had been missing for almost two weeks...
The police began searching for the missing child.
When journalists asked the parents of the missing boy whether they want to appeal to him to come back home, the head of the family shook his head. He says he does not even want to see him. He says the boy just causes problems...
In less than a day, the police found Rostislav at the railway station in Svalyava. The boy was sent to the orphanage in Batyovo in Beregovo district. He is now there. He tells tearful stories from his hard life and flatly refuses to return home, where nobody cares about him...
"When Rostislav was found, he was in a depressed state. Most likely, he will not stay with the family," - the Chief of the Preventive Work Office of the Main Office of the National Police in Transcarpathian region Vasyl Magyar says.
