UPDATE: Authorities Cordon Off Missing Autistic Boy's Home

Posted: Updated:

MENIFEE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities searching for a missing 11-year-old autistic boy have cordoned off his Southern California desert home.
    
TV news reports early Wednesday show yellow crime scene tape around the semirural home of Terry Dewayne Smith in Menifee.
    
The Riverside County Sheriff's Department has not immediately responded to calls for information.
    
About 1,000 people searched the surrounding area on Tuesday and planned to resume the search Wednesday.
    
The boy was last seen at his home on Saturday day and authorities are concerned that he wandered away without food, water or his medication in an area that's seen triple-digit temperatures.
