An 11-year-old autistic boy was reported missing from his Costa Mesa home Monday.
Diego Garcia’s parents called police about 6:45 a.m. when they noticed he was missing from their apartment at 1250 Adams Ave. The youngster’s communications skills are “limited,” but he answers by his first name, police said.
Diego has no history of running away. He is 4-foot-11, weighs about 110 pounds and has long, brown hair. He was wearing a green shirt, black shorts and red sandals when last seen.
Anyone with information helpful to the search was asked to call police at (714) 754-5252.
