An autistic Mississippi teen who disappeared on May 29 has been found alive, the Alcorn County Sheriff’s announced on Sunday.
Nathan Alexander Covarrubias, 13, was last seen at the Summits View Ranch for Boys in Walnut, Mississippi, on May 29, between 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. The FBI joined the search for the boy and also announced he had been found.
According to the sheriff’s office, Nathan was found in Hardeman County, Tennessee, near Middleton, about 8 miles north of where he was last seen.
Officials said it was unclear if Nathan is with anyone else or if he left by force or on his own, and that did not clarify on Sunday. Along with autism, the boy also has disruptive mood dysregulation and bipolar disorder, police said.
