ATLANTA - The biological father of a teen who police say was locked up for years by his mother and step-father says he searched for his son for 15 years after his mother took off with him when he was 3 years old.
Mitch Comer told investigators his stepfather left him at a bus station on his 18th birthday.
Tony Wawrzynski, of Reno, Nev., found out about his son last week, just before the Comers were indicted on child cruelty and false imprisonment charges. He told Channel 2’s Aaron Diamant by phone that he is trying to figure out how this happened.
“Just, how different his life could have been. How different his life should have been,” Wawrzynski said.
Wawrzynski said he looked for his son for 15 years after Sheila Comer took him from their home in Arizona when he was 3 years old.
“My hopes are definitely that I’m going to have my son back,” Wawrzynski said. “I definitely want some time for us to be able to talk and for him to get to know me.”
