Authorities and concerned family members were relieved Monday after locating a autistic teen who has been missing since the morning.
Devon Finks was found at a trolley stop at 1265 Industrial Ave. in Chula Vista in the afternoon after riding buses all day, according to the San Diego Police Department.
They had sought the public’s help to find Devon, 16. He was last seen around 8 a.m. wearing a maroon T-shirt that said “Las Vegas,” dark jeans and gray tennis shoes.
Finks’ father came home around 8:45 a.m. after a meeting at Hoover High School where Finks is a student. The father noticed that Finks was not at the residence.
According to police, Devon is not social and “it is highly unusual for (him) to leave the residence in the manner he did.”
