Store Worker Found Trapped Behind Shelf 10 Years After Going Missing

By

Larry Ely Murillo-Moncada, then 25, was reported missing by his parents in November 2009 in Council Bluffs, Iowa. His mother, Ana Moncada, said in 2009 that her son had started to become disorientated and reported hearing voices before he went missing, with doctors giving Murillo-Moncada a prescription for anti-depressants. Following Murillo-Moncada's disappearance, his parents believed that he had simply become upset and run away from home, and search efforts were focused more broadly. 

Maria Stockton, a translator for his mother, said: "He was hearing voices that said 'Eat sugar.' He felt his heart was beating too hard and thought if he ate sugar, his heart would not beat so hard." 

Authorities were unable to find any trace of Murillo-Moncada until 10 years later, this January.
