Autistic Belmont Teen Found After Going Missing From School

BELMONT (CBS SF) — Belmont police said Tuesday morning that they have located a 16-year-old autistic teen missing since Monday evening.

Tyler Edward Simmons had last been seen at Ralston Middle School at 2675 Ralson Ave. around 7 p.m. Monday, Capt. Patrick Halleran said.

Simmons has the mental capacity equivalent to an eight-year-old and is somewhat antisocial, Halleran said.

He is a student at Carlmont High School and lived in Belmont until 18 months ago when his family moved to Fremont, police said.

Simmons was dismissed from school at 3 p.m. Monday and usually goes to Belmont Public Library where his father picks him up between 4:30 p.m. and 5 p.m., Halleran said.

Simmons’ father went to the library Monday afternoon but did not find his son, according to police.

Family members searched though multiple places in Belmont known to Simmons, Halleran said.

A custodian at Ralston Middle School saw Simmons around 7 p.m. and contacted the family, he said.

The family searched the campus without success and contacted police around 8:15 p.m., Halleran said. By 7 a.m. Monday police said he had been found safe and reunited with his family.
