Missing boy, 11, found in Lower Chanceford Township

AIRVILLE, Pa. (WHTM) – An 11-year-old autistic boy reported missing in southern York County has been found safe.

Police said the boy was found in an outbuilding near the 200 block of Furnace Road, in Lower Chanceford Township, not far from a wooded area where they were searching for him.

The boy was reported missing around 12:45 p.m. He was found shortly before 4 p.m.

Firefighters and a state police helicopter were involved in the search. Crews from York, Cumberland, and Baltimore Counties searched for the boy.

“It was very wooded, very steep, rugged, like all the terrain is out here. [We looked in a] very high field, a grass field, which we had a helicopter fly over. Fortunately, we had a lot of community turn out to help us,” said Capt. Dennis Shaull, with the Airville Volunteer Fire Company.

Police did not release the boy’s name or picture and say they found him uninjured.
