Night Walker

Posted on 17th April 2013 at 16:07

An autistic 12 year-old boy is back with his parents this morning, after he reportedly went on a walk of more than ten miles last night. Around 10 pm, a woman living in the 2400 block of South Silver Lake Road called 911, reporting that her son had left the house, apparently climbing out of a bedroom window. She also reported that he’d left a note, saying that he was heading to Longview for the night, and would be back in the morning. Law enforcement agencies were alerted, along with Search and Rescue. As they were preparing for the search effort, Longview Police reported finding the boy just before 1 am, down at Stuffy’s Restaurant on Ocean Beach Highway. The boy apparently walked the entire way, coming down to Pleasant Hill Road and into town through North Kelso. He went to Stuffy’s “because he likes it there.” They say that the boy was unhurt, and has been returned to his home.
