UPDATE: Santa Barbara Police report that the missing autistic boy named Flavio Hernandez, age 13, has been found. He was located at the downtown Public Library soon after they opened at 9:00 a.m. Flavio told a Library employee that he needed to get to La Cumbre Middle School. The Library employee called La Cumbre Middle School principal, who knew Flavio was missing. The principal drove to the Library and confirmed Flavio’s identity. Flavio was in good health with no ill effects from being out in the cold for several hours. Flavio was reunited with his family: Case closed.

Glad to see that Flavio is doing well and is safe! I was a 1 to 1 teachers aid for him when he was in grade K, and now he's in middle school, looking healthy and happy. Wishing you all the best, Flavio!

Great work by the Librarian and Jo Ann Caines, the Principal at La Cumbre Jr. High. (It hasn't been "Middle School" for at least 10 years. I taught there for 35 years and began and ended my career at a Junior High School...)
