FOUND SAFE: FBI joins in, expands frantic search for autistic boy who hasn’t been seen in over a week

UPDATE: Missing autistic boy from Mississippi found in Tennessee

Original Story

The FBI has now joined in the search for a missing autistic teen who disappeared on May 29 and hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

Nathan Alexander Covarrubias, 13, was last seen in County Road 772 in Walnut, Mississippi, on May 29, between 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Authorities said by this point, he could be anywhere. According to the FBI, the search for the boy has widened, given that he’s had many days to travel.

At this time it’s unclear if Nathan is with anyone else or if he left by force or on his own. Along with autism, the boy also has disruptive mood dysregulation and bipolar disorder, police said.
