Evansville Police say a child has been reunited with their family after reported missing Saturday morning.

Police say the child’s parents didn’t realize until later on in the morning the child was missing.

Authorities say the child is autistic and has left the home in the past.

Originally, Evansville Police reported officers responded to Weinbach Avenue just North of the Lloyd Expressway around 2:30 Saturday morning in reference to a reporter finding a young child walking around.

We're told the reporter attempted to approach the child that she believed to be about six-years-old, but he ran away from her. That’s when police say they found the child on Weinbach Avenue, just north of Virginia Street.

Police say the child appeared to be between four and six years old, but was very minimal to almost nonverbal.

Despite several leads, police say they weren’t able to find the child’s home at the time. The Department of Child Services was contacted and took the child.
