The Nether Providence Police Department (NPPD) is urgently appealing to the public for help in identifying a young child with nonverbal autism, Your Content has learned.

The child was discovered in the vicinity of Blakeley and Willow streets. If you have any information, you’re encouraged to call 911 and ask for a Nether Providence law enforcement officer.

The young child is currently under the protective care of the police, but due to their inability to communicate verbally, identifying them or reaching out to their family has proven difficult. To expedite the identification process, the NPPD has taken to social media platforms, including Twitter, to ask for public assistance.

Community involvement is vital in situations like this. We’re committed to the child’s safety but need the public’s help to reunite them with their family commented by NPPD.

The child was found dressed in a blue top and beige shorts. They had no identification or emergency contact details on them. Local educational institutions, community organizations, and healthcare facilities have been contacted by the authorities in an effort to identify the young individual.
