Shocking details emerge after missing Charlotte teen found in Georgia

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- New shocking details have come to light from court documents after a Charlotte teen was found safe after being reported missing for over a year.

Hailey Burns vanished in June 2016, at age 16, after she walked out of her home in Ballantyne. The FBI announced Tuesday that the teen was found at a home in Duluth, Georgia. 

Michael Wysolovski, 31, was taken into custody and is facing felony first-degree cruelty to children and felony false imprisonment, in addition to other charges. 

According to the court documents, Burns was deprived food and was suffering from malnutrition when she was found. A food journal was also discovered that documented the victim's calorie intake on a day-to-day basis. 

"The victim was limited to a certain amount of total calories a day or would not be allowed to eat the next day," the court documents reported. 

Burns was also confined in an upstairs bedroom and told she would be arrested if she left, the court documents said. 

Burns' family previously told NBC Charlotte that the teen has Asperger's Syndrome and vanished without her medication. Court documents indicate that Burns also suffers from bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
