CLINTON COUNTY, MI – A 3-year-old Michigan boy is still missing after an overnight search, police said.

“Specialized units worked throughout the night and at this time, have been unable to locate the missing child,” the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday morning.

The boy, who has autism and is non-verbal, was reported missing just before 2 p.m. Monday. He walked away from his home on South Bauer Road north of Clark Road in Clinton County’s Watertown Township and hasn’t been seen since.

“If you live in the area, please check your outbuildings, vehicles, trees, etc.,” the sheriff’s office said. “The missing boy is reported to also be a climber and could be in a tree or any other elevated structure.”

Search and rescue operations resumed at 7 a.m. with volunteers. Volunteers also assisted in the daylight-hours search on Monday but were asked to avoid the area at night.

During the overnight search, police used helicopters equipped with infrared heat-seeking devices.
