    Why did he leave his home at 3:30am?

    That's the first thing I was going to ask.

    Noss is 5 feet 5 inches tall, 135 pounds with dirty blonde hair and hazel eyes. By now, he probably has a bit of a 5 o'clock shadow beard and looks unkempt. Noss is known as the friendly Maitland neighbor usually seen in Winter Park at Stepping Stones Preschool, where he has volunteered for the past five years. When he's not volunteering, he can often be found taking local children to the park or chatting with neighbors.
    He sounds like a really nice guy, hopefully they find him safe..

    I wonder if his parents are extra protective of him. News article states has autism and aspergers. Maybe he had a secret friend and went to meet her. Just throwing ideas out there. Hope his computer was checked. Did he have a cell phone with him?

    I have a son who is a little higher functioning Aspergers and they are way too trusting of others, believing what people say, taking it at face value. Very vulnerable, IMO.

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.

    Do we know if John knows how to swim? Lake Howell, Lake Waumpi, and Howell Creek are all extremely close to where he was last seen...

    Also, as a side note- January was a very cold [for us] and rainy month here in Florida; I really hope he has more than the t-shirt, shorts, and sneakers he was last seen wearing I live in Orlando, and I would not have left the house at 3:30 AM in shorts on that day... It was only in the 40s/50s overnight and most Floridians are frozen at those temps!!

    Family members said he may be traveling toward Philadelphia, where he's originally from. According to the note Noss left behind, he contacted a friend up north but was not leaving from Orlando International Airport. None of their friends and family in Philadelphia have heard from Noss and she's not sure he even knows how to get there. Noss probably doesn't have the means to get to Philadelphia. She estimates he has only about $100 and some Chick-fil-A gift cards.

    Noss, who has the mental capacity of a teenager, tends to become more confused when he doesn't have his medication.

    Penn and her husband, Terry Penn, adopted Noss seven years ago after his mother died. He has lived in Maitland ever since. "I really feel like he didn't really know how much we all cared, and that must be part of Asperger's ... maybe not being able to process all the emotions."

    John's NamUs profile has been removed and I found this post saying he's been found safe: https://www.facebook.com/CARD.UCF/ph...765758/?type=3
    (From UCF CARD, a Flordia-based agency that provides support to those with ASD and other disabilities).
    That was 10 days ago, and I can't seem to find any information other than that.

    Welcome home, John!

    After 47 days sleeping in shelters and working odd jobs in Osceola County, Noss was found in Kissimmee on March 3, thanks to his mom tracking one of his gift card transactions to a Burger King on Vine Street.
