It was revealed that Omar was found inside a hole in his neighbor’s underground pit covered with haystack.

Omar was said to have disappeared in 1996 while on his way to a vocational school in the city of Djelfa, Algeria.

His family had lost all hope after he was not found during a search they had launched involving their dog which was later poisoned after it picked up Omar’s scent close to where he had been held captive.

They all concluded that he had been killed because of the ongoing civil war between the Algerian government and Islamist rebel groups.

Unknown to them, Omar was held captive just 200 meters from his family’s residence by a neighbor underneath a pile of hay.

Omar’s captivity came to light after his captor’s brother exposed him on social media over an inheritance dispute.

The post tipped Omar’s family off, who then stormed the home of the 61-year-old civil servant and there he was found.

It was reported that the civil servant who lived alone was often seen buying food for two people.

Omar had told his rescuers that the times he saw his family from where he was locked up, he was unable to call for help because his abductor cast a spell on him.
