    PA - 21 year old in wheelchair abandoned in woods for 6 days

    A 21-year-old man with cerebral palsy has been found, in his wheelchair, in woods in Philadelphia with a bible in his lap. Police think he may have been there since last Sunday and he doesn't appear to have been reported missing.

    He is stable in hospital.

    School officials contacted the man's aunt Monday when he did not show up for school and then the aunt phoned his mom, according to investigators.

    At the time, his mom said she was in Maryland with her son and her boyfriend, and everything was fine, authorities told NBC10.

    Eight hours after authorities found the 21-year-old man, the woman remains in Maryland, Walker said.

    Sounds like attempted murder.

    Per the article, mom lied saying her son was with her in Maryland. An arrest is in order, I would think. This is just so sick, there are no words.

    That is absolutely sickening.

    Hopefully she will be charged and this poor boy will have placement and receive the loving care and treatment he should have been receiving from his so called mom.

    Authorities hope to have the mother back in Philadelphia Monday to face charges, but that won’t be the end of the investigation.

    What a horrible thing to do! I can understand that it might have become a heavy burdon for this mother to care for this son depending on how much help she had. But dumping him in the woods to die was not the solution. And then to go visit her boyfriend and lie about where he was with no concern for his welfare. Unbelievable.

    It sounds to me like she had some help considering people raised the alarm that he was missing.

    A warrant has been signed for his mother, 41 year old Nyia Parker. She has been charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, reckless endangerment of another person, neglect of a care dependent person, unlawful restraint, kidnapping and false imprisonment.

    Agree. In many cases an eye for an eye certainly applies.

    Oh and a life size picture on the ground of her son laying on the ground next to his wheelchair, then to court for sentencing.

    How did LE find out he was in the woods?

    I know we see parents abusing children all the time but it saddens me all the same. I hope this young man is placed in a loving home but knowing that his mother didn't want him will always be ingrained in his heart. People don't realize the damage you can do to someone's self esteem with just words.
