Police search for missing autistic teen in NW Ohio

Published:

TIFFIN, Ohio (AP) -- Police in northwest Ohio are seeking help from the public to find an 18-year-old autistic man who has been missing from home for two days.

Tiffin police say Shiloh Robinson left behind a note saying he might walk to the Toledo area. Police say he was spotted Sunday night in Fostoria, west of Tiffin.

Robinson's mother, Jennifer Duffey, tells The Advertiser-Tribune (http://bit.ly/1gCOiVf ) that they had a disagreement and the teenager left Sunday afternoon without medication that he needs.

Duffey says a family friend reported seeing Robinson more than 40 miles away in the town of Grand Rapids on Sunday, but police haven't confirmed that.

Robinson is described as about 5-foot-8 and 200 pounds. He was last seen wearing an Ohio State University T-shirt, blue jeans or pants and flip-flop sandals.
