    That river is VERY close.

    Question... why is a 7 year old child with autism out walking the dog, alone, in a neighborhood you've been in for only a few days?!?

    That was my first question as well swmnbn . My son he is autistic, we have lived in the home I am in now for 8 years (he is 11), I have a huge canal behind my home, along with a huge river across the street, he is never let alone outside ever, even in our fenced yard. For that matter none of my kids are allowed outside without supervision.

    I pray they find him alive and well, that river, creek is a huge concern for me, children in general love the water. Prayers ! My heart aches for his family right now.

    The first thing that popped in my mind was that he fell in the river and his dog tried to help him
    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    This little boy being missing makes me sad for so many reasons. (Aside from the obvious that an innocent child is missing!)

    I work with children who have special needs and several are autistic. And several of those - all of whom are more verbal than John David apparently is - wear special GPS devices either on a belt on pants or laced through tennis shoes if a girl is wearing a skirt or dress that doesn't allow for a belt.

    With some autistic kids having tendencies to be 'runners' or at least 'wanderers' and others who just, like it said about John David, might be prone to hide from (especially unknown) people looking for them, it's been a precaution many of these families have taken.

    But one of the unique features about them is that through some services you can also have them turned on to allow you to hear the surrounding sounds. So if it a parent looked at the child's location while they were at school and they seemed to be in an unexpected place, the parent could actually activate the device (I believe paying an extra amount to use that feature at the time) to hear what was going on, etc.

    What a help that would be in a situation like this to be able to not only have some gps indication as to his location, but to also be able to hear if there are people around, meaning he's with someone or not.

    This reminds me a bit of the little autistic girl who went missing in Florida sometime last year or so - who thankfully managed to survive. But this is far scarier given that he's non-verbal so couldn't apparently call for help, and also is an entirely foreign area with a dog who returned home wet.

    Praying he's found quickly.

    I know Tim Miller is in Indiana...wonder if he has anything that might help if they do not find him...
    Just my opinion, of course.
