Default Please pray for Robbie Wood, Jr.

Please send your thoughts and prayers for a 9 year old Autistic Child who wandered away from his family over the weekend. His name is Robbie Wood, Jr, and he has been outside in the cold for 3 days now in a heavy, dense forest. Hundreds of Volunteers have been helping search the area, and more are needed. They are also looking for supplies for the volunteers. Here is a link for more information if you live in the VA area, or you can follow http://twitter.com/#!/coybarefoot on twitter for up to the minute details.

I hope they find him quickly and that he is ok.

This is the 3rd recent case I have heard of autistic boys getting lost. Is that common for autistic kids?

Luckily both of these were found healthy but I was shocked that the 14yr old's mother put him on an airplane by himself.

Very common for Autistic children to wander. With no sense of fear, they don't realize what they are doing. My DD has wandered away twice and its the scariest feeling in the world. One minute they are there, the next they are gone. Unfortunately, a horrible symptom of this disease.

that he is found safe and unharmed. What a horrible thing to live through for the parents (and him as well).

I often wondered about the autistic children that are missing that I read about. This child was with their parents apparently. I really don't understand it though because if I'm with my kids anywhere unknown I keep them in my sight the whole time.
