2 teens with autism missing from Westminster found safe

WESTMINSTER, Colo. — Two missing teenagers with autism who were missing have been found, the Westminster Police Department said Sunday.

Police said the teens were located in Denver and are safe. Police did not provide any other details about how or where they were found.

Police said the 17-year-old and 18-year-old boys have autism and function at a 9-year-old level.

They left a group home in the area of 8400 Church Ranch Boulevard just after 6 p.m. Thursday.

One of the teens needed medication that he did not take with him. Not taking the medication could have caused him not know who he is or where he is.
