Huntsville seek missing 8-year-old with autism

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Authorities in Huntsville are searching for a child after he was discovered to be missing from his home.

Huntsville police tell WAFF-TV (http://bit.ly/18MdIvA ) officers went to a home Saturday morning to check on a child who hadn't been to school in two days. They noticed smoke coming from the home, called firefighters and tried to get inside.

Firefighters responded and put the fire out. A woman was found in the house, but the child wasn't there and authorities haven't been able to find him.

Police are seeking the public's help to find 8-year-old Randle Barrow, who is autistic. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is urged to call Huntsville police at 256-722-7100.
