Texas teen forced to ‘play daddy’ as sex slave for years after mom said he vanished: report

Texas man Rudolph “Rudy” Farias, who supposedly went missing eight years ago as a teenager, has now made shocking abuse allegations nearly a week after he was found outside a church, according to a local activist.

Farias, then 17, was reported missing by his mother on March 6, 2015, after taking his two dogs for a walk near his family’s home in northeast Houston. The dogs were later found, but the teenager appeared to have vanished.

Then, in what was hailed as a “miracle” by a missing persons search organization, Farias, now 25, turned up June 29 outside a church in southeast Houston.

Detectives with the Houston Police Department’s missing persons unit reportedly interviewed Farias and his mother, Janie Santana, in the presence of activist Quanell X Wednesday at a hotel in Humble.

The activist was allegedly present at the request of Santana.

“I never heard of a mother doing to a child what this woman did,” Quanell X said, according to KTRK. “That boy needs to go to the best drug rehab and best psychological, mental health facility we can find for him. He’s a good kid. That kid was just severely abused.”

Farias said he did run away in 2015 but returned home two days later. He claimed his mom threatened him if he left the house, according to Quanell X.

“He said he just got tired of her not respecting his boundaries and he wanted his own life,” Quanell X said. “His exact words were, ‘I was tired of living like a slave.'”

Farias was later found sleeping outside a church at 76th Street and Avenue L at about 10 p.m., according to Houston police.

Santana said she had taken her son to the hospital and believed he had been kidnapped then beaten and abused for all these years, KTRK reported. 

“He used to come in my garage, chill with my cousin, son and daughter,” Kisha Ross told the news station. “That boy has never been missing.”

She added, “I am confused right now. I am like, ‘What’s going on?'”

Another neighbor, who was not identified by name, said Farias had been living at home with his mother for years.

The reporter showed a photo of the nephew to the neighbors, but they said they did not recognize that man.

Quanell X said that police had failed Farias, who spent years trapped in his family’s home.
