FBI joins frantic search for missing 14-year-old autistic boy who hasn’t been seen for a week – The Sun

THE FBI is now involved in the search for missing autistic teenager Nathan Alexander Covarrubias who vanished May 29.

Nathan, 14, was last seen in County Road 772 in Walnut, Mississippi between 1.30 pm and 3.30 pm and may have travelled as far as Georgia.

The FBI are widening the search, stating that he could be anywhere given the time since he disappeared.

A spokesperson for the FBI's Atlanta field office said there was no direct indication that Covarrubias was heading to Georgia, but in the days since he went missing, authorities are concerned he could have headed any direction.

Covarrubias has autism, disruptive mood dysregulation, and bipolar disorder.

He is described as a white, Hispanic male who is about 5 feet 7 inches tall and 150 pounds (68 kg).

He has brown hair and brown eyes.

At the time he was last seen, he was wearing a blue long-sleeved shirt and khaki pants.

Authorities are yet to release any details regarding the circumstances of his disappearance.

It is unclear if Nathan is with anyone else or if he left by force or on his own.

In addition to the FBI, the Walnut Police Department and the sheriff's offices in Alcorn and Tippah counties have joined the search.

“Call 911 if you see Nathan or know where he is located,” the FBI wrote.

“The public can also contact the FBI Jackson Field Office at (601) 948-5000 or any local FBI office with information related to Nathan.”
