Minnesota State Patrol trooper locates missing teenager

Autistic teen

 

A trooper paying attention to his Facebook page helped locate a missing autistic teenager from Woodbury earlier this month.  The trooper saw a Facebook post about the teen at the beginning of his shift on Nov. 2.  That same trooper was dispatched a few hours later to a pedestrian call on Interstate 494 in Eagan.  Upon arrival, he immediately believed he found the teen.  After a few questions, the trooper confirmed his suspicions.  Through his friend who made the Facebook post, the trooper was able to get the teen’s address and take him home.
