***FOUND*** Missing with Autism: Lee Cravath (Ogend, Utah)


OGDEN — Police are looking for an autistic teenager who ran away from a residential treatment center.

Lee Cravath, 15, was last seen Friday at 3:30 p.m. at Waterfall Canyon Academy, 818 N. 950 East. He is 5 feet 8 inches tall, 150 pounds with sandy hair and green eyes, and was wearing a bright yellow and black jacket.

Ogden Police Lt. Mike Ashment said it is the third time the teen, who functions at the mental level of a 6-year-old, has run away since coming to the center a month ago, but the two previous times he has been found quickly, including once in a trash bin.

His parents are on their way to Ogden from Arizona. He also had a history of running away there and at times "has been able to travel quite a ways," Ashment said.

If you see Cravath, you are asked to call 801-629-8221.
