While little Sophie Long was finally reunited with her father last weekend, a heartbreaking incident Sunday night led to the nine-year-old being hospitalized and the revelation of yet another bombshell allegation. New developments are emerging every hour in the shocking case of Sophie Long, whose innocent cries for help have gripped the nation and brought renewed focus to the issue of pedophilia and child sex trafficking. 

Sophie's family members spoke to YouTuber Anne Elise and revealed disturbing details of what the youngster claimed she went through while in her mother's custody under the so-called protection of the law. According to Elise, Sophie was heard screaming in the bathroom on Sunday evening, while she was staying with her father over the weekend. When they ran in to check on her, Sophie was allegedly in a "massive amount of pain" and it hurt "so badly that they had to take her to the emergency room."

In the hospital, Sophie confided in her family that "there were multiple men" at the hotel room she was staying with her mother Kelly Marie Mitton while in her custody last week. She disclosed that she was "separated" from the others and isolated on her own. "She disclosed to being assaulted by multiple men and, once again, by Mr. Jake (we now know that Jake Bellington is Kelly's boyfriend)," Elise said in her latest podcast 10 to Life, noting that Bellington was already court-ordered not to be around the child. "They violated that court order. Not only was the boyfriend there, but other men were also in the room assaulting her."

Sophie allegedly claimed she knew 'Mr. Jake' was present because she knew the way he smelled. However, she couldn't identify the other two men in the room.

While Sophie's father Michael Long has been granted custody, it is unclear whether the arrangement is temporary or permanent. Authorities promised the father that his daughter would be safe in Kelly's custody and offered a police officer to stand guard as well. However, if the claims are true, there was an obvious lack of duty on the police's part. "Sophie told her family that the police only came to her hotel room twice. They never came inside and they only talked to mom," according to Elise. The officers allegedly only entered the room when it was time to transfer Sophie's custody to her father, she claims.

While there had been no actual supervision, per Sophie's claims, the authorities had been reassuring her family of her safety -- saying they had spoken to her multiple times and that there was nothing to worry about. 

That said, Sophie is allegedly also suffering from PTSD and her family has told Elise how she often goes into a state of catatonia for several minutes on end due to her alleged prolonged abuse.
