WEST VALLEY — A Magna teen with severe autism who left home Monday has been found in West Valley in good condition, according to Unified Police Department.

Jack Hunn, 15, disappeared after last being seen at his home in Magna at about 5 p.m. on Monday, according to the Unified Police Department. Investigators said he has severe autism and is capable of traveling long distances on a bike in a short amount of time.

“When Hunn has run in the past he has been located in several cities throughout Salt Lake County,” a statement from the police reads. “Also, when he has run he has been known to try to get into abandoned houses or houses he believes are abandoned.”

Investigators noted that Hunn, who is considered to be an endangered missing person, had never been missing for this long.
