The boy was found at a bus station. He's thought to be in his late teens to early twenties. He doesn't know his name, age or where he comes from.
He speaks Urdu and Hindi. The person who found him put him in touch with Coventry Refugee and Migrant Centre.
He could well be the victim of people traffickers and fled to escape them.
He told the centre that while in the house he wasn't allowed outside and he did not go to school. All he had in his possession was a letter from a solicitor saying he was 'stateless'.
Because he's "stateless" he can't see a doctor or get help from various agencies. It's thought that he arrived in Coventry on 11 November.
