A teenage boy lived inside a Texas Walmart store for days without anyone noticing.

The 14-year-old boy slept in a 24-hour Walmart in Corsicana, Texas for several days, CBS Dallas reports. He built two "campsites" for sleeping in the store, one behind boxes of strollers and the other behind paper towels and toilet paper.

According to CBS Dallas, the boy ate items taken from the store and was found when he left a "trash trail." The police sent the boy into the custody of his relatives, and Walmart has not expressed interest in filing criminal charges.
