Teen shows up bruised, chained at Calif. gym

Teen shows up bruised, chained at Calif. gym: Police are questioning a couple after a bruised and half-naked 17-year-old boy showed up at a gym Monday with a chain locked to his ankle, claiming he had just fled his captors, authorities said. Matt Robinson, a spokesman for Tracy police, said authorities believe the teen was held against his will in Tracy _ a city about 60 miles east of San Francisco _ after he ran away from a Sacramento foster home in 2007. Robinson said authorities are questioning a couple in their 30s, but that they have not been arrested or charged. He said the emaciated boy was confused when first approached by detectives, unsure where he had come from and how long he was being held against his will.
