Yet another autism wandering / drowning

FORT LUPTON - There is little she can say or do to bring her three-year-old son back. But Bonnie Lawson is hoping this story will help others avoid a similar fate.

Lawson and her son Aiden were playing around the house Saturday when Aiden managed to slip out the sliding door into the back yard.

Once he was in the back yard, Lawson said Aiden climbed over the fence and ran toward a pond. No one saw him take off.

Lawson, her husband Alan, and several neighbors searched and searched, but they couldn't find him.

"There was no sign of him," she said.

About 45 minutes later, a neighbor saw something floating in the pond. It was Aiden's body.
