Teen Applies to College, Finds Out He's Been a Missing Person for 13 Years

Follow ➡

18-year-old Julian Hernandez was applying to college.

Hernandez was living with his father, who changed his name.

A problem with the high schooler’s Social Security number came up, leading Hernandez to approach a counselor for help.

That counselor ran a background check on Hernandez, later discovering that he was listed as a missing person by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Hernandez was reported missing by his mother in Birmingham in 2002, after his father left a note saying he’d taken the boy.
