Autistic Teen, Jacob Allen Found

The good news is that autistic teen, Jacob Allen has been found alive. He is an 18-year old that was hiking with his family and "wandered off". The search went on for about 3 days, 3 1/2 days? The terrain was steep and thick with brush. They were adamant that Jacob was dressed appropriately, even for some night lows in the 40s. He was in shape and used to hiking. Apparently they said that there were plenty of natural water sources, so he shouldn't be too dehydrated. They were concerned that he wouldn't respond to his name.
The chill one must feel when a child wanders off and in a relatively dangerous place.
It's great news that he wasn't hurt, as far as we know.
The bad news? It isn't front page headlines. Jacob isn't a sparkly girl with all sorts of bubbly smiles or the victim of a tawdry crime. I think everyone deserves a happy ending, not just the pre-pubescent blond girls with tons of friends.
