Julian Hernandez Discovers He Had Been Missing For 13 Years

Julian Hernandez from Alabama, discovered he was listed as a missing child. He only found out after going to a school counselor when his Social Security number came up as invalid while filling out college applications.

Julian has been missing in Alabama since 2002 and has been found safe in Ohio with his father Bobby Hernandez, who has since been charged with abduction, authorities have said.
Julian Hernandez, disappeared when he was five and is now 18, living with his father in Cleveland.

The FBI received a tip on 30 October that this teenager may be the long-missing child after problems he had applying for university. Julian was having issues with his Social Security number as he applied to universities and approached a school counsellor for help. The counsellor realised he was listed as a missing child by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

His mother has been notified of his recovery and was very happy to hear he had been found.
Authorities suspected around the time of the boy’s disappearance that his father was possibly the culprit.
A missing persons database shows that Mr Hernandez said he was taking his son to pre-school in August 2002 but then fled.

The house Julian was living in with his father

It is not known if Julian knew he was missing. He lived alongside a woman and two other children in his father’s house.
“He is 18, he is an adult, so it’s kind of up to him now as to whether he wants to come back,” a police officer has said.
