"Special Needs" or it is "At-Risk." Who makes up this media reporting vocabulary anyway. Geez.

SBPD reports that they have checked the campus, fields in the area, all around the school and Andrew is not there. I heard a police officer say that the kid was seen running West from the school when he was last seen..Makes me wonder if there was an incident of some sort? I hope the kid is OK..

Possible sighting Anacapa and Carrillo..Police to notify Paseo Nuevo security..I wonder if he is in one of the museums or maybe near the Sea Center?

Workers at the Granda report seeing Andrew 5 minutes ago probably around 1:10pm.. Or someone matching his discription.

@105P - spare us your faux outrage at our public servants for using respectful language describing Santa Barbara's kids born with disabilities; and

@142 - your comment is offensive and not humorous in the least. I feel sure that kids born with disabilities would rather not have to take a bus that others "joke" about.

Let's all try to proceed with some dignity and respect for folks born with their disabilities -- it was the caprices of nature, not their own harmful acts.

I wonder if the kid got bullied to make him run off like that? I hope he doesn't get in any trouble with his family over this.

If you are a teacher in the high school system, you know that "special needs" can refer to all sorts of individuals, not just those born with disabilities. It's a blanket term that covers "at risk" youth as well.

The kid is an autistic 15-yr-old, according to SBPD.

This kid don't sound like a trouble maker..I was Special Needs when I was a kid also.

I work in schools and have never heard an "at risk" kid called "special needs."

He's 5'8 180 lbs, not 140 lbs, and he's Hispanic.

What about a Speal Needs kid being called At Risk? They still haven't found the kid checking Smart and Final and Ralphs...I hope they find him before it gets dark.

Thank you, Roger for keeping us updated. It must have been very stressful for you to hear the drama as it was taking place. I know how much you care about others and am sure that you were sick with worry as you were posting the updates. So glad this boy was safely located and returned to his parents...like you, I hope he doesn’t get an earful for taking off from school, because it sounds like he had a pretty rough day already… but I’ll be he’ll have some sort of unpleasant consequence for his bad choice.

He was at Nopolotios and Quarantina when spotted he was not headed to McDonalds he was running that way.. Pretty good runner..It was close to getting dark and yes I was very worried dangerous as HELL for a kid to be out there amongest some offenders that are houseless sex offenders for one. The first place they looked for him was kids world. Thanks Stacie.

105P, ANY student who appears to have run away, cannot be found or has anyone concerned about them, whether or not they have "special needs," IS AT RISK. Nomenclature is certainly not the topic of discussion in this situation. Some compassion here, please. Glad it ended well.
