The children's removal was sparked after a 12-year-old child was reported missing in the area on March 31, the Fairfield Police Department said in a news release.

Child protection officials made one prior visit to the home several years ago, Rogers said.

Police found the child and returned him home, where they found the other children and conditions they described as "unsafe and unsanitary".

Ina Rogers of Fairfield told reporters Monday that she called authorities in March after her 12-year-old son didn't come home.

The police took the children into protective custody.

An investigation into the family has revealed a "long and continuous history of severe physical and emotional abuse of the children", police say.

Allen was charged with nine counts of felony torture and six counts of felony child abuse, and he was arrested on the morning of Friday, May 11.

Allen was arrested May 11, and charged with seven counts of felony torture and nine counts of felony child abuse. She said Rogers spoiled her children and the messy house was just life with children, cats, a dog and fish.

On the day the children were removed, the house was messy because she had just torn it apart looking for her missing son, who was angry because his parents had taken away his tablet computer, Rogers said. As the investigation continues, Henry said there's a "good chance" Rogers could face additional charges.

She and her husband both came from broken homes and they wanted a large family, Rogers said.

Neighbors in the cul-de-sac said they did not know how many children were living in the house as they were mostly kept out of sight, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

"She was pretty concerned, and she was like, you know, running around the neighborhood", Magney said, adding that he was "shocked" to learn that 10 children were living in the house, the Chronicle reported.

She said: "There's no broken bones, there is no major scars, nothing". Kids get rebellious and that's all that happened, ' Rogers said.
