STANTON, Mich. — A missing child with autism was found Wednesday evening.

Nine-year-old Kevin Yarrington had last been seen around 10:45 a.m. walking west from his home on Stanton Road near Stanton.

Michigan State Police told FOX 17 Kevin was found by a property owner about a mile away from his home. They were searching their property for Kevin when they saw something red – unusually red for the wooded area. It turned out to be the sweatshirt Kevin was wearing when he wandered away. Kevin was hiding behind a log when the property owner found him.
