Search Teams Look For Missing Menifee Boy With Autism
Menifee is a small town located in Riverside County that usually receives little media attention. Sadly, this northern neighbor of the tourist popular city of Temecula has been in the news over a story still in progress about a boy with Autism who has been reported missing by his family. Terry Smith, a 11-year-old diagnosed with Autism, was last reported seen Saturday night and now full search efforts are being utilized to find the boy who has the cognitive patterns of a 7-year-old. Making the situation even more serious are the scorching triple digit temperatures that add an element of danger if the boy wandered up into the nearby foothills around the California city. Now police are asking for help from the community to assist them in getting the word out so this story has a positive ending.
While authorities and search teams continue to search for the missing boy, many parents who have autistic children of their own are looking at what options are available to help prevent such a situation happening again. One of these technological solutions is a GPS tracking watch the autistic child can wear and that will provide real-time positional data to parents 24/7. "I began researching different GPS personal tracking devices when my son Parker escaped from the house one mid afternoon", a Murrieta mother of a severely autistic child explained. "Even though our family is diligent about locking doors, our cognitively challenged son found a way out of the home and into the street. Thankfully, our neighbors were aware of Parker's condition and promptly brought him home."
GPS Trackers: Helping Family Safety
When a child with autism wears a GPS tracking watch the parents, teachers or other guardians can rest assured that they will have constant access to the location of that child at any given time. The GPS tracking data is live and accessible via mobile phone, iPad or computer with Internet. What is even more impressive is that the GPS watches offer geographical fencing features that will alert parents the very second the child equipped with the personal tracker leaves a particular area such as the home or school. This allows parents to locate and bring home safely their child quickly if they do wander off.
It is with sad hearts that GPS Tracker Shop has to report that Terry Smith, the autistic boy missing in Menifee, was found dead by law enforcement authorities. The body of the young boy was found near the home of the parents and foul play is suspected. The brother of Terry Smith has been arrested in connection to what appears to be a premeditated murder. GPS Tracker Shop would like to extend heartfelt sympathies to the family members and those who loved or cared for Terry Smith.
