The case of the missing boy, who was abducted by his father, has become more complex following the latest revelations gathered by the investigators in New Mexico. Instead of finding the missing boy, police rescued 11 malnourished children.


The kids were found in a make-shift compound and appeared to have been living in filthy conditions. The five adults at the compound, including the missing boy’s father, were charged with child abuse.

Unfortunately, the missing boy was not included in the 11 children and is still nowhere to be found until today.

The 11 children are currently under the custody of the Children, Youth, and Families Department (CYFD).

KRQE News 13 revealed that everything began in December 2017. The sheriff in Taos County received a call from Georgia’s police department asking about 39-year-old Siraj Wahhaj.

According to the police, Wahhaj told his wife that he was going to take their three-year-old son, who recently turned four, to the park. The father and son have not returned since.


After a couple of months, the authorities received a tip about the father and son’s whereabouts. The tip revealed that they might be in Taos County. Soon enough, a search warrant was issued by the Taos County Sheriff’s Office for the mysterious compound.

The police searched through the property on August 3 and finally found Wahhaj, along with a man named Lucas Morten and three women.

The missing boy named Abdul was not found, and only the 11 children.

CYFD Cabinet Secretary Monique Jacobson said they have been trying their best to make the children feel safe and comfortable, as well as keeping them healthy.


Abdul’s mother and grandfather, reported as a prominent Muslim leader in New York, made public announcements asking for Abdul’s whereabouts. They pleaded for his safe return.

An arrest warrant for Wahhaj revealed that the boy’s mother informed the police of his plans to perform “an exorcism on the three-year-old.” Allegedly, Wahhaj believed his son was possessed by an evil entity.

Wahhaj and the other four adults were charged with 11 counts of child abuse.

At present, Wahhaj is expected to be extradited to Georgia. Morten was also charged with harboring a fugitive.

According to the Taos County sheriff, the two men were heavily armed, but neither of them fired their guns during the arrest.
