***UPDATE*** The LVMPD located the missing autistic juvenile in good health. The NLVPD wants to thank everyone who helped locate the juvenile and our partnering agencies for their help in this case.— NLVPD (@NLVPD) October 5, 2018
Vincenzo Paradiso was found south of McCarran Airport, nearly 15 miles away from his high school. A family friend says he knew he was lost but was too afraid to ask someone for help.
We were able to capture an emotional reunion between Vincenzo and his mother at 1 a.m. Friday morning. That was 12 hours after he walked away from Cheyenne High School in North Las Vegas.
ORIGINAL STORY: North Las Vegas Police are searching for a teen that has been reported as missing. They say Paradiso is autistic, needs medication regularly, and suffers from severe peanut allergy.
He was last seen at Cheyenne High School by staff Thursday at noon.
UPDATE Search for missing 16-year-old is continuing through the night. Please keep a look out for him and call the NLVPD at 702-633-9111 with any information. pic.twitter.com/c7PKY9NRgQ— NLVPD (@NLVPD) October 5, 2018
