Decorah Police seeking special needs student who left school alone, search planned Article says he may not answer to verbal interaction and was seen at the Sugar Bowl ice cream shop on Water Street in downtown Decorah but went missing from the high school between 9:00-10:00 a.m. There will be an official search with volunteers that began at 5:00 p.m. today. Here is a map of a route from the school to the ice cream shop (7 minute walk): Google Maps
IMO-it appears that this young man has Down Syndrome. It is very concerning that there is a major river that goes through the town and lots of parks and wood areas.

There is a college on Decorah and it's a bigger town than other towns nearby, but don't picture Decorah like many Iowa towns, it is surrounded by hills, so I am not picturing him lost in cornstalks, he would have to walk miles if I remember right.
