Boy With Autism Missing From Children’s Hospital in Chicago, Illinois Since June 19, 2012 Please Help Find Kahil Gray.
A 15-year-old boy with autism went missing Tuesday from the University of Chicago Medicine’s Comer Children’s Hospital in Chicago, police said.
Kahil Gray was last seen around 4 p.m. at the hospital wearing a white shirt with blue stripes and light-blue jean shorts, according to an alert from police. A hospital representative said Kahil was not a patient, but rather was at the facility with his father to pick up forms.
"Once notified, we immediately activated our system and responded to assist the police and the parents to locate the child," said Mona Sonnenshein, chief operating officer of the University of Chicago Medicine, in a statement. "Our officers canvassed the campus and nearby areas looking for him."
Sonnenshein said footage from hospital video cameras shows Kahil leaving the facility and heading toward South Cottage Grove Avenue.
Police described Kahil, who lives near 92nd Street and Stony Island Avenue, as black with a medium complexion, standing 5-foot-6 and weighing 130 pounds.
"We are very worried," said Vaughn Gray, Kahil’s half-brother. "He is very friendly, will give anyone a hug but doesn’t speak well. He says very few words."
Kahil’s parents told the hospital he can recognize his name, though he doesn’t speak. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 312-747-8274.
