Missing Canadian boy with autism, likely drowned

LAVAL, Quebec, April 5 (UPI) -- A missing autistic toddler likely drowned in a river near the Quebec home he was visiting, Canadian police said Tuesday.

The search for Adam Benhamma, 3, was concentrated on the Mille-Iles River in Laval, Quebec, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported.

The boy, who disappeared Sunday while playing outside with his 7-year-old sister, cannot hear or speak. Their father had gone inside the house a short time before the sister rushed in to say she couldn't see her brother.
