Body of a young juvenile male found in pond

Texas City Police Department confirmed that a body of a juvenile male has been found in a retention pond in Texas City during the search for a missing 7 year old with autism.

Xavion Young was last seen Sunday at 12:15 p.m. at the Coast Mariposa Apartments in the 7500 block of Medical Center Drive, where he lives with his mother.

Because of his autism, search crews were told he couldn’t cry out for help and that loud noises could scare him away.

Children with autism are often drawn to water.  According to Xavion’s family, he liked to feed geese at the pond.

Hundreds of volunteers in the community and Texas Equusearch helped in the search for Xavion. The news of a body being found Monday afternoon is devastating to so many.
