Julian Hernandez has just been found living with his dad outside Cleveland. He was reported missing from the Birmingham, Alabama area by his mother back in 2002. While there have been several leads, no one knew where Julian was.
That's when the boy applied to several colleges, and realized that there was an issue with his social security number. He approached a school counselor, who was trying to help when she realized Julian was listed as missing by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
Julian had been living with his father, 53-year-old Bobby Hernandez in Ohio and under an assumed name. A woman and two other children lived in the home, too.
Bobby has been charged with tampering with records in Ohio to get a driver's license in 2012, and police say he'll face additional charges in Alabama. He's being held in Ohio on a $250,000 bond.
As for Julian's mother, well she's still in Alabama, and of course, is ecstatic about the news.
