UPDATE: Alert Cancelled
Louisiana State Police has now canceled their Level II Endangered/Missing Child Media Advisory for the Bossier City Police Department after a 15-year-old autistic child was reported missing from his home on Riverwood Loop in Bossier City.
Police say Joseph Allen LaCour is a 15 year old black male with short black hair and brown eyes.
He is about five feet four inches tall, and the teenager weighs around 125 pounds.
LaCour was last seen wearing a gray zippered jacket with a hood, black tactical pants, gray Nike tennis shoes and a blue backpack with lime green zippers.
The autistic teen is non-verbal and has a cleft lip and palate.
Police say that caution should be used when approaching Joseph because while he is a non-violent young man, he would likely run away from anyone who approaches.
Anyone with information about Joseph Allen LaCour is urged to call the Bossier City Police Department at 318-741-8605 or call 911.
