12-year-old Boy on the Run With Wanted Parents 通緝犯父母躲藏 攜12歲兒藏房中未到校

Kaohsiung police discovered a 12-year-old boy has been "on the run" with his parents, who are wanted by the police. He was found locked up in a room and seemed socially withdrawn. 


Hidden in a small 4-ping unit, a 6th-grade boy by the nickname Hsiaohsing has been dragged around by his parents in Tainan and Kaohsiung because his parents are being wanted by the police. Hsiaohsing has been missing from school for that matter.

Wang Chun-sheng, Captain, Juvenile Delinquency Prevention Brigade, Police Dept., Kaohsiung: “His parents have been running away from the police's chase so they stayed at each place for as little as 10 days to three months at the most. Ten days were the shortest at one place.”

Police say that Hsiaohsing and his parents have been staying at different cheap units for rent for a period of time. The young boy has been mostly locked up in the room and would only go out when the family needed to move to a new location. The Kaoshiung Education Bureau found out that Hsiaohsing never reported to the new school that he got transferred to in Nov. of 2021. The school contacted the National Dropout Reporting System after failing to locate his parents but the police took some time to locate them as well since they moved around so frequently. Finally, in Sept. of 2022, they were found hidden in a very small room in Kaohsiung. His parents made a meager living by selling recyclable materials and selling used cell phones online.

Li Hui-ling, Dir., Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Prevention Center, Kaohsiung: “The little young is very shy. He couldn't really respond to questions. It is probably because he's been mostly home alone for the past year and did not have contact with the outside world.”

The Kaohsiung Social Affairs Bureau said the boy was not abused but he was a bit socially frightened. He has now been sent back to school and to live with his grandparents in Tainan. The Tainan City Government is also offering special counseling. The Kaohsiung Education Bureau said schools usually contact the parents when a student misses class for three days. However, Hsiaohsing's case was more difficult since he moved around so much. He was also the last dropout case in Kaohsiung to be found. In Kaohsiung, all 183 middle schools and below dropouts have been found.

 

 

 

藏身在4坪大的雅房中,化名小興的小六男童,因為被通緝的父母不想入獄也怕被追債,帶著小興台南、高雄到處躲,學業也中斷。

高市警少年隊長王春生表示:「這對父母親為了躲避警方的查緝,所以他租屋的時間,都是10天到3個月不等,那最短的大概是10天。」

警方表示,小興跟父母都住在便宜的出租雅房或套房,換住處時外出,其他時間都被關在房子裡。高市教育局從去年11月發現小興轉學後沒到校,家訪也聯繫不上家人時,就通報警政中輟系統,但他父母搬遷次數頻繁,增加追查難度,最後是警方掌握到他父母在某處活動,9月上旬才找到這家人,但3人窩在一間房間,男童和母親睡床、爸爸睡地上,父母以撿拾回收物或二手手機上網變賣維生。

高市社會局家防中心主任李慧玲表示:「他確實是很退縮,在問話的部分,不太能夠回話,大概因為長期這1年來,確實比較多在居家,減少社會的社交。」

社會局表示,男童初步檢視沒有受虐,但對社交有些恐懼,已由男童祖父母帶回台南撫養,並進入國中就學後續由台南市提供輔導協助。教育局則回應,一般學生3天內沒到校就會通報、家訪,這個個案長達1年找不到,是因為男童父母帶著他不斷搬遷,難以追查,男童也是全高雄最後一位通報中輟的協尋者,今年度183位國中以下中輟生已全數由警方找回。
