EXCLUSIVE: Charlotte Sena's suspected kidnapper Craig Ross suffers from ... trends now
Craig Ross Jr, 47, was arraigned on a first-degree kidnapping charge in the early hours of this morning at Wilton Town Court and is being held without bail
Suspected kidnapper Craig Ross Jr had recently moved into the trailer where missing Charlotte Sena was found because he was suffering from multiple sclerosis, DailyMail.com can reveal.
The 47-year-old reportedly suffered from the condition so badly that he struggled to get around the property in Porters Corner, New York, and had fallen behind on payments.
He was charged with one count of kidnapping after the nine-year-old vanished while riding her bike on a family camping trip at Moreau Lake State Park in upstate New York.
Hulking Ross was arranged at Wilton Town Court in the early hours of Tuesday, and is being held without bail.
Neighbors told DailyMail.com that the 6'4' 275lb father-of-three barely spoke and could often be seen working in his yard.
He moved into the trailer at the rear of his mother's property around a month ago, after the debilitating condition worsened.
Ross, who appeared disheveled in a mugshot released by New York State Police, was described as a 'recluse' who would care for his youngest daughter, 11, for half of the week at his $180K three bedroom home.

Charlotte was found 'alive and safe' on Monday - two days after she was snatched from Moreau Lake State Park in Gansevoort. She was taken to Albany Medical Center Hospital after being found
DailyMail.com can reveal that Ross reportedly suffered from MS and had just moved to the trailer four weeks ago because his condition had worsened
Federal agents and state troopers swooped on the home, which is less than two miles from Charlotte's family property, on Monday night.
State Troopers remained on the scene on Tuesday, with crime scene tape blocking the drive to the building and two additional buildings.
One neighbor said: 'It's the best scenario that she's been found. Last night I heard sirens, and the entire road was covered with undercover cars and state police and Troopers.
'I asked if I should be concerned, and the police asked me to look at photos and I told them yeah, that's Craig he owns that house and his sons live there now.
'They're in their 20, I've briefly seen them but they keep to themselves. My kids ride their bikes up to his mailbox and that's about it.
'He was pretty reclusive, he moved in shortly after us. He made a driveway earlier in the year and never quite finished it,' added the neighbor.
'This was his home up until about four weeks ago, he had to move back into the trailer with his mom because his MS got so bad.'
Locals confirmed that they were asked to identify images of Ross by police, and confirmed that he lived in the property with his two sons.
They added that his daughter spent a lot of time at his home before the incident, and they never expected the kidnapping to be linked to 'the quiet neighbor'.
'Charlotte is from two miles away, so in this rural area he is close to her,' another neighbor said. 'I was shocked by all of this.
'His daughter spent a lot of time here, she was half here and half with her mom. It was just him up until recently, with his sons moving in.
'The troopers said that they were planning on questioning him all night. He has three houses in his name so we don't know if he has money trouble or anything.
'It's the sticks here. If you don't want your relatives in the house you put them out back.'
