UPDATE: According to Tulsa police, a missing Tulsa teen with autism has been found safe.

Police say 16-year-old Danny Nathan was located at a friends house this morning near East Central High School.

Police say Nathan is back home with his mother.

Another autistic teen has gone missing in Green Country this week.

Police tell us 16-year-old Danny Nathan went missing Tuesday night.

He was last seen in the area of South 96th East Avenue around 11 pm.

His mom says he is on the autistic spectrum but is high functioning and because of his condition assumes everyone is his friend.

The family told police it's normal for him to wander off occasionally for an hour or so, but this time, he hasn't returned home.

He's six feet tall and 150 pounds.

He was last seen not wearing a shirt, camo shorts and no shoes.

Nathan does have asthma and it's unclear the last time he took his medication.

If you have any information that could help find Nathan, please call the Tulsa Police Department.
