A search resumes Monday in southeastern Indiana for a missing 7-year-old boy who is autistic.

Police are trying to find John Burton Jr., who was last seen just before noon Sunday at his home in Aurora, in Dearborn County.

Burton is nonverbal and is known to hide from people he thinks are looking for him.

Police and bloodhounds have been searching for Burton. Crews also looked from helicopters and in some nearby water.

A special search team from Indianapolis is aiding search efforts.

Police asked anyone with information to call Aurora police at 812-926-1101.
