CAMDEN COUNTY, Mo. (KTLA) -- A Missouri woman who kept her 6-year-old son in an attic during a custody dispute with his father has been sentenced to five years of supervised probation.
Aubrey Ferguson was sentenced Jan. 8 for child abduction.
The boy was missing for five months before law enforcement officers found him in January 2019 at a home in rural LaClede County.
Court documents said the door of the attic crawl space was nailed shut and concealed by carpet and furniture.
