URGENT: Nonverbal autistic girl vanishes amid Tropical Storm Isaias, police say

Authorities in Pennsylvania have asked for the public’s help in locating a 5-year-old girl who reportedly vanished Tuesday.

The Towamencin Township Police Department said in a Facebook post that Eliza Talal was last seen around noon on Spring Valley Road in Lansdale. Police said they believe Talal is as “special risk” for injury as she’s nonverbal and autistic.

Additional details were not made available. WCAU reported that police haven’t confirmed whether Talal’s disappearance is related to Tropical Storm Isaias, which caused floods and power outages in the region.
