He kinda looks like this kid that got kicked out of parmatown mall last week. He was wandering the mall for a few days, then started doing inappropriate things while walking around and got kicked out. He was tall and had on blue scrub type pants on.

I too have a 16 yr. old with Aspergers Syndrome, cannot imagine why this child's parents would have waited soooo...long to report him missing!

I am his mother. I reported him missing with the Mogadore police Department the same day he took off, I then reported him Missing to the National Center of Missing and Exploited Children, and to the Ohio attorney Generals office. All of which, because Andrew had a history of taking off for a 1-3 days at a time, wasn't being taken too seriously by local authorities. Once he was gone a week with absolutley no contact with anyone did the seriousness of the situation start to kick in with the authorities. I asked the authorities to contact NMAEC, and they didn't, I asked that he be put on the news, and they said no. So I contacted NMAEC, I have gone out and put up the flyers, I contacted the news and am grateful that someone finally listened. So before you judge me as his parent, please get the facts instead of assuming thing. Thank you!
