Update: Missing Del Cerro teen with Asperger’s found, reunited with family

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — 1/13/2017 — 16-year-old Crispin Dowell was found safe Thursday and has been returned to his family, according to the San Diego Police Department. 

1/10/2017 — A surveillance image of a missing 16-year-old Del Cerro boy who suffers from Asperger’s syndrome was circulated Wednesday in an effort to locate him.

Crispin Dowell failed to return home after visiting Chase bank branches in Santee and La Mesa on Monday morning, according to San Diego police. He was
last seen at a trolley stop in Santee.

The photo shows Crispin at a trolley station in La Mesa before he went missing, but authorities said he may still be wearing the same clothing — a blue hooded jacket, a hat and white or silver Nike shoes. Crispin was also seen in San Ysidro.

Crispin is white, 5-foot-8 and 160 pounds, with short blond hair and blue eyes. At the time of his disappearance, he was unshaven, was wearing prescription glasses with black frames and was carrying a red backpack.

Anyone who spots a youth matching Crispin’s description was asked to call police at (619) 531-2000.
