Hillsboro police looking for missing autistic teen |

Police in Hillsboro are looking for a missing male teenager with Asperger’s syndrome, a form of autism.

The teen, Christian Lee Linden, 18, has left his parents’ Hillsboro house on foot Sunday and has not been seen or heard from since.

Linden functions at the level of about a 13 year old and is not considered dangerous, said Hillsboro Police spokesman Michael Rouches. However, it is believed Linden is unable to care for himself properly.

Linden is fixated on mixed martial arts and the family suspects he might be exploring local MMA or similar gyms. He rides public transportation but left home with no money.
