A 15-year-old boy with autism was found dead last night in his family’s above-ground pool.
Earlier in the day, the Parker Co. Sheriff’s Office asked for the public’s help to locate James "Jimmy" Charles Eader, who went missing around 2 p.m. Thursday.
Eader suffered from severe autism and seizures and had been off his medication for two days.
Several officers, K9s and helicopters helped search for the teen Thursday.
Sheriff Larry Fowler said all indications are that the boy’s death was accidental.
