An 11-year-old boy reported missing from his North Highlands home Monday was found and reunited with his family Monday night.
Nathaniel “Nathan” Lasater was brought to his family around 10:50 p.m. by “a citizen familiar” with him, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department said late Monday. He has high-functioning autism and needs medication for his medical condition, the department said.
Nathan was reported missing earlier Monday by family members. He was last seen at his home in the 5800 block of San Marcos Way about 4 p.m. Monday.
The boy has been known to hitchhike and has been located as far away as Modesto in the past. He has no fear of strangers, and will ask for money or a ride, an earlier news release said. He knows his phone number, home address and how to call for help if needed.
