Police are guarding the Georgia home of a couple accused of child cruelty after authorities reported finding an emaciated teenage boy at a Los Angles bus station.

Authorities say the teen weighed 87 pounds and told them he had suffered years of abuse after being taken out of school in the eighth grade. Los Angeles police said Thursday that the teen told police his stepfather gave him $200 and a list of homeless shelters before he was put on a bus to California on his 18th birthday.

Jail records released by Georgia's Paulding County show the teen's stepfather, Paul Comer, and mother, Sheila Marie Comer. face charges of false imprisonment and cruelty to children. The records do not indicate if they have an attorney.
