Thanks to the efforts of first responders in Roseville, Minn. this 10-year-old boy with autism who wandered was found using Project Lifesaver. In 2015, Autism Speaks provided Project Lifesaver with a grant to fund autism safety training for over 100 first responder organizations and enrolled over 200 individuals with autism prone to wandering in the program in 25 states, including Minnesota!
