Missing Autistic Child Found

It was a group effort in the search for a missing autistic child for more than four hours Sunday night.

According to College Station police, the family and neighbors of the 17 year-old began their own search of the neighborhood in south College Station before contacting police just before 7 p.m.

Over a dozen CSPD officers, deputies from Brazos County Sheriff’s Office and a local Game Warden joined the search. Seven College Station fire department units and a Bryan fire department Rescue Operations Unit also responded.

St. Joseph provided their Air Med helicopter and Brazos Valley Search and Rescue responded to the scene as a member of The Search Dog Network with their canines.

Police received a call from a citizen whose description matched the missing teen walking along Bird Pond Road.

College Station fire personnel safely recovered the child just before 9:30 p-m and he was reunited with the family.
