Teen boy makes Texas Walmart his home for several days

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Employees at a Texas Walmart made a startling discovery when they found a teenage boy living inside the store.

The 14-year-old had apparently been living inside the store for several days and wasn't just hiding, he had built two secret compounds in the store in order to keep himself out of sight for days.

One of his living spaces was in the baby product aisle behind boxes of strollers, while the other was behind stacks of paper towels and toilet paper.

The boy even went as far as to use diapers instead of the store restroom to avoid being detected.

A trail of trash finally led employees to find him.

"I'm wondering what his parents think, and how come he didn't come home, and why aren't they worried about him," store customer Megan Nicholson said.

Child Protective Services says the boy lives with relatives, but was visiting other family when he disappeared.
