Las Vegas police are asking for help finding a missing 10-year-old boy, last seen Saturday, who may be in “severe emotional distress.”

Darius Williams was last seen about 6 p.m. Saturday near Twain Avenue and Cambridge Street, west of Maryland Parkway, the Metropolitan Police Department said. He may be in need of medical attention, police said.

Exactly what kind of "severe emotional distress" is this poor child in? Also, I would hope that an unaccompanied minor turning up at a hospital would warrant a call to LE without being requested...

Police are requesting that all hospitals check their registries for the missing person and notify the police immediately.

Having trouble with the link right now so please excuse me, but I also read on another site that he needed medical attention. I wonder if he is on the autism spectrum? Did he leave because he might have been having a meltdown?

Didn't even think of that, but very possible. Even more reason to call and report him missing right away though!
Thankfully he's been found. I hope he gets the help and stable home life he deserves.

UPDATE, Wednesday 8:30 a.m.: Las Vegas police say the 10-year-old boy that went missing Saturday has been found.

Metro police did not give any other information regarding the update, but did thank the public for their assistance.
