A welfare check on Sept. 21 led the Barrow County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) to uncover a captive situation involving a man who had boarded up the doors and windows of his home, trapping his wife, four children and disabled elderly mother inside.

His wife called the police asking for the welfare check on her husband, Thomas Brantley, after she and her four children were able to exit out of the back window.
