Siraj Wahhaj, 39, of the state's Clayton County was accused of kidnapping his toddler, who was ultimately not found.

The women, believed to be mothers of some of the children, have been named as Jany Leveille and Subhannah Wahhaj, both 35, and Hujrah Wahhaj, 38. Police did not say how the adults were related to one another. The Sheriff's Office said Abdul Ghani was due turn 4 on August 6.

Police in Georgia say his mother contacted them after her husband, Siraj Wahhaj, told her he was taking the boy to the park.

But it is unclear whether the remains found Monday are those of a missing Georgia boy, Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj, who was nowhere to be found after authorities stormed the complex on Friday. Ramzi also told police in Georgia about his medical condition. "I'm not sure how much law enforcement knows and how long they've known it for". She was anxious that the toddler's father had not taken any medication to give to his son.

So on Friday, the Taos County Sheriff's Office and state authorities executed a search warrant on the compound.

Instead, deputies found five adults and 11 other children who "looked like third-world country refugees", living in squalor with little food and no clean water, according to Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe.

Conte ultimately departed the club and he was replaced by Sarri, leaving Willian pleased to stick it out with the London side. Maurizio Sarri had expected to speak to Courtois about his future after conceding on Sunday the goalkeeper could be sold.

"We did an extensive search for the missing child, our primary target", he said.

A message pleading for food and water has led U.S. police to rescue 11 malnourished children held captive in New Mexico.

Asked about the FBI's role in the operation at the conference, Hogrefe said he "can't speak for another agency", but had written in an initial press release that Federal Bureau of Investigation agents had said they also felt there was not sufficient probable cause to act earlier.

The warrant could not be obtained until it was eventually sparked by a note sent from inside the compound, which ultimately reached a Georgia detective reading "We are starving and need food and water".

".it had to be a search warrant and a tactical approach for our own safety because we had learned the occupants were most likely heavily armed and considered extremist of the Muslim belief", he said. He said all five were due to make their first court appearance on Wednesday.

No fresh water was found at the site, and the only food there was a few potatoes and a box of rice, police said.

The second man was identified as Lucas Morten who investigators believe to be the primary person living at the compound.

Deputies discovered several children and arrested two men during a raid at a compound in New Mexico Friday. The group told an Alabama officer, according to the report, they were headed to New Mexico on a camping trip and were later picked up in a truck registered to Morton.

A New Mexico sheriff says searchers have found the remains of a boy on a property where authorities raided a makeshift compound last week in search of a missing Georgia child. There was no running water, plumbing or electricity.

The rural compound in Amalia, N.M., was buried under scrubland and covered in plastic. Outside, children's pans hung across a broken sheet of hardboard, backdropped by dust, tires and the mountains.
