UPDATE: The teenage boy reported missing earlier has been found, the Edmonton Police Service (EPS) said Monday night.

Edmonton police are looking for help as they try to find a missing teen with autism.

The 14 year old was last seen at about 1 p.m. on Sunday afternoon in the Bonnie Doon area. Police say he functions at the level of a seven-year-old and needs medication for several health problems.

In a news release issued on Monday, police said the teen is fascinated with planes, buses, and trains. He has been found in the past at the airport, the Greyhound station and transit garages.

He is five-foot-six and weighs 130 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes.

Police said they are worried he may be trying to leave the city or province.
