Police say he was suffering from malnutrition
1 0

Police say a 10-year-old boy has been found in filthy conditions in a locked bedroom at a London, Ont., home, where they allege he'd been held for up to two years.

The boy was taken to hospital Thursday and was diagnosed as being underweight and suffering from malnutrition.

Police say the boy was being looked after by his aunt and uncle but no names were released in order to protect the child's identity.

Police say the home's master bedroom had an ensuite bathroom so the child had access to a toilet and shower but they say the entire house was in squalid condition.

The boy's aunt and uncle are both charged with failing to provide the necessaries of life and forcible confinement.

Police say the couple also has a biological child but there's no evidence at this time that that child had ever been locked in a room in the house.

The investigation is continuing.
