A 19-year-old boy with autism who went missing about three years ago was found sleeping at a gas station in the US state of Utah.
Thus, local officials said. Authorities found Conorjack Oswald in Summit County after someone reported he was sleeping outside a gas station. After taking him away and scanning his fingerprints, police were able to identify the man who was reported missing in 2019 in Clearlake, California.
Oswald’s family has been searching for him for years, distributing flyers and searching social media. According to local media, the family moved to his hometown of Idaho Falls, hoping he would eventually return there.
Oswald, who was diagnosed with autism, was 17 when he left the family home in Clear Lake. His mother, Suzanne Flint, remembered doing Quesadillas, but when it was time for lunch, he was gone. “Not a day goes by that I don’t look for him,” Mom told the American media.
Details of Oswald’s disappearance and his whereabouts in recent years are currently being investigated by police.
