Missing teenager

UPDATE, 8/15:  Nathan has been found.  He's safe and the autism community is breathing a collective sigh of relief.

Nathan Carman, a teenager with autism, has been missing from his home in Connecticut since Thursday morning.  Family members think he may be trying to get to New Hampshire.

Please spread the word to friends who live in the Northeast to keep their eyes open for him.

8/15 - Edited to add:  Nathan is still missing.  His family has started a Facebook page, which you can find here.  On it, they write:
This page is for us to help find 17-year-old Nathan Carman and bring him home. He has been missing since 7 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 11, 2011, from his Middletown, CT home. Nathan has Asperger's Syndrome, a high-functioning form of autism. He may appear stoic and may or may not respond when his name is called. He was last seen on Thursday afternoon on surveillance cameras as he exited a city bus on the New Haven, CT Green. There have been no sightings of him since then. Please call 9-1-1. Please, let's bring Nathan home to his family.
You can help by putting this on your status. Let's make this go viral until we bring Nathan home!
Please do what you can to help spread the word.
