Wandering Children with Autism

Creve Coeur, Mo -- A 10-year-old boy with special needs is safe after running away from school on Monday. Doctors say so-called "autism-related wandering" is common for people with developmental issues including autism.
"Parker is five and a half. He was diagnosed with autism when he was two," said Amy Lim of Creve Coeur.
Lim says in the past two weeks, her son, Parker, ran away from home twice.
"It is really difficult going out in public or even just at home. If he chooses to leave the yard he will find a way to do it," said Lim.
