Missing with Autism: Terry Dewayne Smith Jr (MENIFEE, Calif)

MENIFEE, Calif. - Remains have been found at the Menifee home of an 11-year-old boy with autism who went missing Saturday, ABC affiliate KABC reported.
Investigators are working to determine if the remains are human.

Terry Dewayne Smith Jr. disappeared from his family's home in the 3300 block of Helen Lane Saturday between 7:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. 
The 11-year-old boy was initially said to have been last seen in his brother's room Saturday night. On Wednesday, however, officials said his 16-year-old brother saw him following him to a nearby market. Once his brother realized Terry was following him, he told him to go home. Terry then disappeared. 
Crime tape blocked the street that led to the boy's family home as the investigation continued Wednesday.
