Stratford Police say Ayden Steep has been located safely.
SPS says he was observed by a resident who called police.
He has been taken home and reunited with his family.
Stratford Police are searching for a missing 16-year-old male.
Ayden Steep is described as a white male, 5’9, with a thin build and dark brown hair worn in a crew cut style.
He was last seen leaving his home in Stratford on Tuesday evening and he was wearing a black winter coat, jeans, red t-shirt, and black shoes.
He doesn’t have a cell phone and has limited access to money.
Steep has been diagnosed with a communication disorder that limits his ability to understand what others are saying and the meaning of what’s being said.
Police say he responds best to short, simple sentences and yes or no questions.
Anyone with information on where he is is asked to call SPS.
