Autistic boy found after 24 hours in Calif. mountains

Monterey County Herald

LAKE ARROWHEAD, Calif. — An 8-year-old boy with severe autism was found Tuesday after being lost and alone for more than 24 hours in the San Bernardino Mountains.

Joshua Robb appeared to be in good condition when search and rescue workers found him about a mile from the school he ran away from Monday, said Jodi Miller, spokeswoman for the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.

"As you can imagine, he is tired but appears to be OK," Miller said.

Joshua is being given food and water by search and rescue workers until a medic can be lowered by helicopter to assess his health and he is airlifted out of the area.

About 60 searchers from four counties, aided by dogs and helicopters, scoured the mountain area.
