April 4, 2017: The National Autism Association releases a new study highlighting the risk of injury and death relating to missing persons with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The study, Mortality & Risk in ASD Wandering/Elopement, found that nearly a third of reported ASD missing person cases related to wandering/elopement from 2011 to 2016 in the United States ended in death or required medical attention. The study was based on over 800 media-reported missing person cases in the U.S. over a six-year period involving individuals with an ASD.
