The story of the 12-year-old friends who stole the car of the father of one of them and traveled 450 kilometers from Bahía Blanca to General Villegas added a new chapter after the story of one of the boys.
This is Ayrton, who acted as co-pilot of Isaiah, the boy who stole the father's car last Saturday. The teenager denied the version of his friend's father and said he "mistreated him."
"Isaiah wanted to leave because his stepfather beat him up a lot. She defended her little sister more than him. I mistreated him. So I wanted to go with the mom," Ayrton said.
The mother did not abandon them, she left because of the stepfather's fault. He told me everything. The stepfather wouldn't let him go with the mother," he added, speaking to TN.
Isaiah and Ayrton are schoolmates. In addition, on Saturday mornings they go to a Sunday school. It was from there that they set out on a journey along Route 33. They wanted to get to Santa Fe, where their mother lives.
We were in fourth or fifth. To have fun every time a car passed us, we passed it," Ayrton said of the dangerous adventure.
He also said that during the 450 kilometers traveled only one police stop was crossed, but the agents were not stopping any car. "The police didn't see us, there was no one when we passed. No control, nothing," the boy said.
He also revealed that, halfway through, they climbed a young man in his 20s who was hitchhiking. "He was desperate for someone to take him because the family was waiting for him," he described.
He said they stopped at a gas station where the subject lent them money to load naphtha and even bought them bags.
For her part, Vanesa - Ayrton's mother - said that Isaias was left in the care of his mother and was concerned about the situation.
"At first I thought it was a prank. There were many versions. But I believe in my son's. He decided to accompany his friend to leave the father's side and go with his mother. He acted as a friend," she explained.
"I never imagined it. I never thought I would live such a thing. It was a surprise. He gave me no indication. He told me it wasn't prepared. He came on Saturday, saw that Isaiah was desperate and weeping a lot. He told him what he was going to do and said 'well I'll accompany you,'" the woman added about the explanation her son gave her.
He concluded: "I couldn't believe that my son did more than 400 kilometers. I thank God that I take care of them and nothing happened."
The Word of Isaiah's Father
In discussing the episode, Isaiah's father had not mentioned any kind of mistreatment. On the contrary, he said that Isaiah's mother had abandoned him a few months ago and that this triggered the journey.
However, a phrase that Juan wielded reverberates at this time: "Isaiah told the police: 'my dad is going to kill me because I took his car.' He knows he sent it big. He is aware. That's why he's scared. So now he wants to go to the mother. He knows he sent a shit."
The man referred to what his son said to the members of the 6th Police Station who found him, in a joint work with General Villegas personnel.

According to Juan, the Thursday before the incident, Isaias had asked him to teach him how to drive and they took a ride in a field near his home in Bahía Blanca.
On Friday night, he said, they stayed watching movies until late. When he got up the next day, according to his account, one of his other daughters told him that Isaías sent messages on WhatsApp with a "noviecita" from Villegas and that they had arranged to see each other.
According to the man, they lived in a town in Villegas until they moved to Bahía Blanca. She knew her friend from those times. Then, the boy grabbed the father's wallet and took out 10,<> pesos in cash. Afterward, he took the key to the black Volkswagen Gol and left.
"I worked at Tres Algarrobos. We came and went continuously," said Juan, in dialogue with La Brújula 24 FM 93.1. Earlier this year, the man said he had to resign to take care of his children because their mother abandoned them and went to Santa Fe.
With that information and the information that he was going to meet a friend of Villegas, the man presented himself to the police. However, the boy managed to get there without anyone stopping him on the way.
