A 17-year-0ld teen with Asperger, a higher functioning form of autism, has been missing for nearly 48 hours. The Seminole County teen, Brandon Lassonde, went to the local library around 4 pm on Sunday, but never returned. His family says he’s disappeared before, but never has he been gone this long. The Seminole County Sheriff’s office is asking the public to help in finding Brandon.

Brandon was last seen with a black backpack, wearing a gray sweatshirt and roller blades. He is 6′ tall, has cropped brown hair and blue eyes.

At this point, the Sheriff’s department has no evidence to suggest foul play. With Lassonde’s form of autism, he may have gotten disoriented or sought refuge if he was scared. Police are urging anybody with a tip to call 911.
