PLEASANT GROVE, Utah, Aug. 13, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — Pleasant Grove officials have located a missing autistic juvenile.

“Autistic 17-year-old Tyler Crawford is missing,” said a Facebook post from Pleasant Grove Police Department Thursday afternoon at 4:45 p.m. “Fascinated by storm drains, manhole covers, valve boxes, etc. Tends to hide in bushes and pretends to be a cat or dog.”

An update from the police department at 10 p.m. said: “UPDATE! Tyler has been FOUND! He’s safe and sound and has been reunited with his family. Thanks to the community for pulling together and helping to locate him. It was heartwarming to see people in our community volunteer by the hundreds to search for someone who was a stranger to them. Thanks everyone! We love our PG community!”
