And as KTVT reports, he might have been planning for a longer stay.

"Customers who walked down the aisles where the teen was living never noticed two hidden compounds where the boy was able to store necessities, sleep in a makeshift bed and eat items taken from inside the store."

The two "hidden forts," as the Daily Mail calls them, were stashed away in the baby stroller and paper towel aisles.

And the teen had a few other tricks up his sleeve that show just how committed he was to staying out of sight.

He reportedly created a hole in the back of the drink aisle where he could grab drinks, changed his clothes every few hours to avoid detection, and took to wearing diapers so he wouldn't have to use the store's bathroom.

As WGHP writes, a trail of trash eventually led employees to the boy, and although police were called, the boy was released to relatives.

KTVT, which initially broke the story, said the boy was visiting relatives when he disappeared and that there was "no indication" Wal-Mart plans to file criminal charges.
