Non-verbal teen found in Reno reunited with family
The Reno Fire Department reports the teen has been reunited with his family.
Authorities are asking for the public’s help to find the family of a teenager, apparently autistic, found Saturday in Reno.
Reno Animal Control was responding to a call in the area of Keystone and Alturas avenues at about 11:15 a.m. and the juvenile, estimated to be 14 to 15 years old, began growling at the vehicle, the Reno Police Department said.
He is described as being non-verbal. His family could not be found. There is a group home in the area but police said he did not walk away from there.
The Reno Fire Department tweeted out his photo with a request that anyone who knows his identity or his family to call 775-334-COPS.
