  • Jonathan NACKSTRAND Police technicians enter the apartment in a Stockholm suburb where the mother is suspected of keeping her son for 28 years

The mother had become "overprotective" after losing another child at a young age, giving her son the same name as the child who died, the relative told the outlet.

A relative who went to inspect an elderly woman's home after she was admitted to hospital was shocked to discover the woman's son - who authorities believe had been held captive for 28 years!

He's an adult and could go out if he wanted.

"He has no injuries that are consistent with violence".

"Society now needs to help this man, and this woman too".

The unidentified relative who found the man said the apartment looked like it had not been cleaned in years.

The man, who was immediately hospitalised for surgery, had infected sores on his legs and could barely walk, media said.

Tove Boman, a 24-year-old who lives in the building next door, told AFP she had only seen the mother.

Neighbours said the mother kept her apartment in a dilapidated state, with an advent candle standing in one window for around 30 years. They had no idea that she was hiding such a bad secret. If she is found guilty of false imprisonment, police say she could face up to ten years in jail.

Olsson said investigators would be interviewing the mother, the son and witnesses.

A number of neighbours claim to have never met the son, or realised he was living in the apartment until police arrived.

The sister explained she had gone to the apartment on Sunday after learning the mother had been admitted to hospital. "There are no indications that there have been locked spaces", prosecutor Emma Olsson told AFP news agency.

She said that she heard a noise from the kitchen and found the man sitting on blankets and pillows in a dark corner.

There was so much rubbish piled up in the hallways that it was hard to walk through, the person said.

The boy was left with just a cheese sandwich, a can of mackerel and a bowl of chips to survive on.

An old TV had also been left on in the flat, which was otherwise completely silent.

According to reports quoting an unnamed relative, he had been kept in the apartment for 28 years after being taken out of school. "I've been waiting for this day for 20 years because I figured out that she was totally controlling his life, but I never imagined the extent of it", the relative said. "It smelled rotten", she told Expressen, adding that she had to wade through piles of junk to get through the hallways.
