Missing with Autism: Jeffrey Cooper (Boston)

BOSTON - Police are asking the public for their assistance in the locating of a missing 15-year-old autistic male.

Jeffrey Cooper went missing form his home in East Boston last night at around 7:30 P.M.

Cooper has trouble communicating his needs due to his autism. He enjoys riding trains so police believe he may try to visit the South End area or the Boston Garden. Cooper has a history of wandering away before and was located on the MBTA red line in Braintree and Quincy.

He was last seen wearing a white Celtics T-shirt with white running pants with a purple stripe down the side. He was also wearing a black hat and blue and white sneakers.

If anyone has any information on Jeffrey’s whereabouts they are asked to contact East Boston detectives at 617-343-4234 or contact CrimeStoppers Tip Line at 1-800-494-TIPS or text ‘TIP’ to CRIME (27463).
