8 year old with Autism, Joshua Robb, missing in woods, had been taken from parents for being tied to a pole

8 year old with Autism, Joshua Robb, missing in woods, had been taken from parents for being tied to a pole

Aside from the obvious issues that the school has here (it is their responsibility to keep him safe), some other interesting facts have come to light. Joshua had recently been taken from his family and was in the custody of a teacher. The reason he was taken from his parents? They were moving from their house and had tied Joshua to something to keep him from running out while they moved.

It was described as “tied to a pole” by ABC.

According to KABC, authorities recently removed Joshua from his parents’ custody and put him under the care of his teacher after someone saw the boy being tied to a pole, something Joshua’s father, Ron Robb, said they do to restrain him.

It was described as tethering him by Joshua’s dad at NY Daily News.

“We had to lightly tether him while we were moving stuff out of our house,” the father, Ron Robb, said.
