Migrant boy found wandering alone in Texas had been deported and kidnapped
RIO GRANDE CITY, Texas — Nicaraguan authorities have put out a news release identifying the migrant boy seen wandering alone along the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley this past week as Wilton Eniel Gutiérrez Obregón.
It says they made contact with the boy’s father, Lázaro Gutiérrez Laguna, who detailed how his son and wife initially headed to the U.S. in February.
The trip was financed by the mom’s brothers who found smugglers for them to get the U.S., according to Gutiérrez Laguna.
He then says he paid a ransom but only had enough for his nephew to be released. The smugglers then abandoned Wilton after leading him across the border.
