An autistic University City teenager who went missing Wednesday has been located, authorities are reporting.
Demetrius Vitalich, 17, had left his home to go jogging about 9 a.m. and failed to return, according to San Diego police.
They said the teen has the mental age of a 10- to 12-year-old and may run if confronted.
The boy is black, 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs about 140 pounds, with short black hair. He was wearing a knit cap and blue shirt — with Denver Broncos logos on both — at the time of his disappearance.
He returned home on his own and is safe, police said.
