Autistic boy missing from NOE last seen getting off school bus
The NOPD is asking for the public's help in locating a 13-year-old boy missing from New Orleans East. Joshua Harrison was last seen getting off a school bus Friday morning in front of Schaumburg Elementary School in the 9500 block of Grant Street. At approximately 7:45 a.m., school officials reviewed video surveillance that showed Harrison getting off of the bus and walking in the opposite direction away from the school. Harrison has autism and school officials believe he might be heading downtown to attend the parades.

Harrison has not been seen or heard from since.

It's about 8 or 9 miles from his school to the downtown area. I hope he's found soon.

From the link in the OP, Joshua is 5'0 tall and was wearing a gray uniform shirt and a purple and gold LSU jacket.

NOPD contact is Seventh District Detective Perrin Gaines 504-658-6070. Or call NOPD at 504-821-2222.

Schaumburg Elementary School Tilt view from the front drive: once the map loads just click on the school icon to look around

I wonder which direction the bus traveled, where the parades he may have been heading toward would have been?

Could this be the kind of "purple and gold LSU jacket" the description refers to?
or this or this a kids jacket or this one in a youth size I'm sure there are other possibilities, but no pictures of him in the jacket?
He's 5 ft tall, so probably would blend into a crowd without alarm

The parades were uptown along St Charles Ave from Napoleon to Canal St., 8-9 miles away from the school like BayouBelle posted. There was one in Metairie about 12-13 miles away.

He could've gotten down to Canal St and Broad on a bus from Chef Menteur Hwy., but he'd have to walk a couple of miles or transfer to a second bus to get close to the parade route (unless there's a new bus route I'm not familiar with that would take him directly downtown).

What would be your guess if he walked, RT 10 crossing?

If he does make it to a parade, hopefully, a good level-headed person will help him get home. I'm not sure if the crowds are a good thing or bad thing. Police officers have their hands full.

Yes, I-10. So the streets below it would get him past the canal?
He'd have to walk across the bridge. But honestly, I think he must've gotten on a bus. I wonder if he mentioned to his family that he wanted to go to the parades. Breaks my heart. I sure hope he turns up okay.

Me too. Hope he makes it home in good shape.

"school officials believe he might be heading downtown to attend the parades."

I wonder if this is a recent picture. He looks younger than 13. I can't find any more information on him.

He does look quite young. I hope he is found safe. I pray that with all of the extra eyes on NOLA this weekend, he is less likely to be harmed and more likely to be spotted.

So little coverage on him and I find very little on him. Very disheartening.
