The parents of the 13-year-old boy who went missing for two days in July have been arrested and charged with three counts of second degree child abuse.
The young boy went missing in mid-July. He was last seen running into the woods in Readmond Township. Dozens of deputies and volunteers searched the area and eventually found him in Cross Village.
"During the course of the search, my office received several tips as to the reason why this young man may have left his home," said Sheriff Pete Wallin.
After he was found, an investigation began regarding possible child abuse by his adopted parents.
Phil and Kimberly Loesch, the boy's parents, turned themselves in. They are out on a $10,000 bond.
Sheriff Wallin is asking that anyone with information call 231-439-8900.
