An 18-year-old diagnosed with autism and Down syndrome was reported missing on Sunday afternoon, the San Diego Police Department said.

He was found and reunited with his family, police announced around 8 p.m.

Andrew Surposa was reportedly last seen at his home on the 5600 block of Market Street near Valencia Park on Sunday around 3 a.m., police said.

He is described as 5-foot-1 with short brown hair, wearing a maroon sweatshirt with yellow neon shorts and white tennis shoes, police said.

Police said Surposa has trouble communicating verbally and does not have access to a cell phone or forms of payment.

Surposa knows how to take the MTS trolley from Euclid Avenue to 1100 C St. as he does so for weekly classes at San Diego High.

He was also documented as a runaway in May 2019 and was found at his former address on the 3800 block of Boston Avenue in Southcrest.
