Authorities said that once he was discovered by Gonzalez, Mitch spent a day at Exodus Recovery Center in L.A. and nearly a week in a local group home in L.A. This week, detectives and representatives from the Paulding County D.A.'s office flew to Los Angeles to retrieve Mitch. He arrived back yesterday, according to Henson, and is now remaining in Paulding County.
Paul and Sheila Comer are in custody after being arrested at their home in Dallas, an upscale Georgia suburb, after they were tracked down by authorities through their in-home business. They are now facing six counts of cruelty to children and one count of false imprisonment, and are being held without bond.
The Paulding County Sheriff's Office said that this is still an active case, and there may be more charges pending in the future.
A preliminary hearing and the hearing for their bond will be held on Oct. 4. A fund has been set up in Mitch's name at the West Side Bank in Hiram.
