Missing with Autism: Courtney Shriner (Vancouver)


VANCOUVER -- Family members and police were searching Thursday morning for a teenager with autism who vanished in the Vancouver area Wednesday.

Courtney Shriner is 19, but she functions at the level of a 13-year-old, due to her autism, according to family members.

She was listed as “Missing and Endangered” because she may be off her medications.

She was last seen with Zachary Tichrob, 17, near the Safeway on NE 63rd Andressen Rd.

Anyone with information on her whereabouts was urged to call Vancouver police at 360-487-7399.
