Hardin County Sheriff’s deputies found the body of a missing autistic teenage boy in a pond northeast of Ada late last week. The boy’s family reported he went missing around 3 p.m. Friday in the area of 726 Township Road 55.
Law enforcement officers, firefighters, and EMS crews joined friends and family members in searching the area. Medical helicopters also helped scan for the boy. Searchers found the boy’s body in a nearby pond around four hours after he went missing.
