A seven-year-old boy has been rescued after a horrific alleged kidnapping when the boy was spotted on the dark web.

Savely Rogovtsev was feared murdered when he vanished from his Russian home.


But thanks to Western intelligence web sleuths, Savely has been reunited with his overjoyed parents after his 'miracle' discovery.

Russian police had been tipped off by Interpol that a site on the dark web revealed the boy was with his abductor some 14 miles from his home where he had gone missing in late September.

The source of the tip is believed to be an unnamed foreign intelligence agency scouring hidden areas of the internet used by criminals.


Police have now detained a 26-year-old man who allegedly bundled Savely into a car, but have so far not revealed details of his identity.


The child is now receiving “strong psychological help”, it was revealed.

After Savely disappeared a huge search involving police, army and volunteers had failed to locate him.

The boy’s father Alexander Rogovtsev, 47, told REN TV: "He was very happy to see his mother.

“He hugged and kissed her.

“We are overwhelmed with feelings…

“It is an explosion of emotion and relief that the ordeal is over. Finally he is found.”

He added: “We have just left the doctors and he is healthy, he has not lost weight.

“He is a normal child. He threw himself round our necks, sat on our laps, a happy child.

“We always believed that we would find him.”

Savely had gone missing after getting off his school bus in Gorki village, Vladimir region.

Alexander added: “My son said the man pushed him into his car.

“He has been detained already. We do not know where he kept our son.”




Regional children’s ombudsman Gennady Prokhorichev said: “This is a miracle. Thank God it is a story with a happy ending.”

He admonished the parents for not escorting the boy to and from the school bus, adding: “This is a lesson for us all.”

Savely, the youngest of four children, now needs “strong psychological help”, he said.

“For a month and a half he was kept in a strange house by a man for some reason - he was separated from his family.

“Now we need to work with the child. He needs the love of his family."

Colonel Irina Volk, of the Russian Interior Ministry, said the tip about the boy had been received “from foreign colleagues through Interpol channels”.

The boy’s whereabouts had become clear from “publications in the shadow segment of the Internet”, she said.
