HOUSTON,TX. (AP) - Child-welfare officials say a boy who was allegedly kidnapped by his babysitter eight years ago is healthy physically and emotionally.
Miguel Morin is in foster care in Texas after police arrested a family friend accused of running off with the boy back in late 2004.
Lisa Rose, an investigator for child-protective services, testified Thursday that the boy is a normal height and weight and that he's well-mannered. But he cannot read or name the school he attends.
Miguel's parents agreed to provide DNA to confirm that the boy is theirs. It's not clear when the three might be reunited.
