Deputies Search For Missing Autistic Boy

San Bernardino County sheriff's deputies fanned out to help find an 8 year old boy who vanished from the school playground on Monday morning.
In a news release sent out shortly after the manhunt began, deputies said Joshua Robb was last seen playing at Grandview Elementary School at around 11 a.m. and didn't return to class.
Deputies and school officials grew very concerned about him since he has Autism.

Autistic boy missing in Southern California woods

Authorities scoured the woods of a San Bernardino mountain community Monday night, in search of a severely autistic boy who ran away from his elementary school during morning recess.

San Bernardino County sheriff's spokeswoman Cindy Bachman says 8-year-old Joshua Robb ran out of the gates of Grandview Elementary School's playground in Arrowhead at about 11 a.m. Monday.

Staff gave chase, but the four-foot-six-inch boy ran into the surrounding forest and has not been found, said Bachman.

Law enforcement was on scene within minutes of receiving the call that a boy was missing from the school, said Bachman.

"He's rather quick and this kind of behavior where he runs off is typical," said Bachman, adding that to her knowledge he'd never been lost in the woods before.

Rain, cold make search for missing boy harder



Search and rescue crews continued scouring the woods in the San Bernardino Mountains Tuesday for a missing 8-year-old boy with autism.

Joshua Robb ran off Monday morning from Grandview Elementary School in Twin Peaks.

Staff members said Robb ran off the playground and into the woods. They gave chase, but they weren't able to find him.

He was wearing black shorts, a T-shirt and sandals.

The weather is making it difficult for rescuers. It rained on and off overnight, and temperatures were in the 40s.

Crews used thermal imaging equipment and helicopters.

12 September 2011

Search intensifies for missing boy, 8

The family of a severely autistic boy -- missing overnight in the San Bernardino Mountains -- is sequestered in a donated resort cabin near a sheriff's station that is the command post for the search.

Thick brush is a key impediment to the search.

"It is so so thick back there, it's just daunting," Lt. Rick Ells said of the trees and brush behind Grandview Elementary School where Joshua Robb was reported missing at 11:03 a.m. Monday.

The boy squeezed between the bars of a metal fence that surrounds the kindergarten playground, say sheriff's and school officials. Beyond the fence is a short embankment and dense forest.

"The (emergency) response was very quick," recalled Cherie Singer, the school's principal. "The aides, everybody, were on it immediately. I ran out, took a look, but I didn't see any movement in the forest. I called the sheriff.

"Everybody continued to look before the sheriff arrived. We started scouring the school."

Within minutes, five deputies and four California Highway Patrol officers arrived. And a sheriff's helicopter showed up within 15 minutes.

Searchers found what they think are the boy's sandal tracks about 200 yards downhill from the school toward Dart Canyon.

"We brought a bloodhound out early," said Ells, the sheriff's lieutenant. "The scent led to the tracks. We're 100 percent sure we found his prints. He'd gotten some new sandals ... over the weekend."

Searchers were hindered by the boy's disability.

"From what I've heard, he does not respond to his name," said Singer, the principal. "From what I understand, he does not have much of a sense of direction."

Hoping to attract the boy, deputies broadcast music into the forest yesterday. But they don't believe their equipment was very effective, so they're bringing in additional equipment today, their commander said.

Autistic boy lost near Lake Arrowhead is 'daredevil,' father says

The distraught father of an autistic 8-year-old boy who ran away from his elementary school into the San Bernardino National Forest said his son is fearless and hopes he will be safe.

"I'm sad, frustrated, angry," said Joshua's father, Ronnie Robb, told KTLA News in an interview. "I'm hoping he is a survivor like me.

"I'm just hoping that he's safe and OK. He's a bit of a daredevil with the autism," the father added. "He doesn't really have any fear."

Officials saw Joshua Robb running away from Grandview Elementary School in the Lake Arrowhead area Monday morning, apparently after squeezing through a fence.

Staff members chased Joshua, who is 4-feet-6 and about 75 pounds, but couldn’t catch him before he ran into a nearby forest.

San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputies responded within minutes of receiving a call that a boy was missing from the school, said Cindy Bachman, a spokeswoman for the agency.

“This kind of behavior where he runs off is typical,” she said, while adding that Joshua had never fled into the forest before or been gone long enough to merit a search by law enforcement.

Autistic boy missing on CA mountain hit by storm

A search resumed Tuesday for an 8-year-old autistic boy who ran away from school and was missing on a mountaintop lashed by rain and lightning.

The hunt for Joshua Robb in San Bernardino National Forest was briefly suspended earlier in the day due to the thunderstorm.

"It was too dangerous to send them out," San Bernardino County sheriff's spokeswoman Cindy Bachman said.

Joshua was wearing a polo shirt, shorts and sandals and had no food or water, Bachman said.

"He certainly was not dressed for the weather," she said.

Missing autistic boy is found in San Bernardino National Forest

An autistic 8-year-old boy who was missing for more than 24 hours after running away from his school was found in "pretty good shape" Tuesday afternoon in a deep canyon in the rugged San Bernardino National Forest, sheriff's officials said.

Joshua Robb, who had crawled through a school fence at Grandview Elementary late Monday morning, was found about a mile away in an area that was difficult to reach.

"He's drinking water ... eating ... it's elation ... relief," San Bernardino County sheriff's Lt. Rick Ells told reporters at the Twin Peaks Sheriff's Station near Lake Arrowhead.

Medics have been flown in to check his condition.

"His general condition, he seems in pretty good shape. He is tired, eating," said Ells.

Rescuers had spread out across the forest Tuesday morning in a frantic search for the boy.

A shoe print was found by the more than 60 deputies and California Highway Patrol officers who were looking for the boy.

Staff members at the school had apparently chased Joshua, who is 4 feet 6 and weighs about 75 pounds, but they couldn’t catch him before he ran into the forest.

News of the boy's rescue came just as Joshua's father, Ron Robb, was speaking to reporters.

Missing Autisic Boy Found After Searchers Play Ozzy Osbourne

The search for 8-year-old Joshua Robb, the California autistic boy who was missing during a night of lightning storms, ended this afternoon when a search and rescue team found him in the woods near his school after playing recordings of Ozzy Osbourne.

Joshua was dehydrated and tired, but in good shape, authorities said according to ABC News affiliate KABC.

Joshua had spent Monday night in the forest near the San Bernardino mountains in dangerous conditions. Lightening and heavy downpours temporarily stymied overnight search efforts .

When the weather subsided today, the search for Joshua resumed around 7:30 a.m., aided by Los Angeles County, Orange County, and Riverside. Authorities used two dogs to detect Joshua's scent as more than 40 people sifted through thick brush on foot. A helicopter searched overhead.

The searchers also used recordings of his father's voice and Joshua's favorite country and heavy metal music, including songs by Ozzy Osbourne, heavy-metal pioneer and former lead vocalist of Black Sabbath.

"They feel it will comfort him and draw him," San Bernardino County sheriff's spokeswoman Cindy Bachman told the Associated Press earlier today.

Joshua, who is severely autistic, is disturbed by loud noises, which worried the search and rescue team.
