Authorities say a 5-year-old boy with autism has been found dead near US 1-90 in Port Allen after being reported missing from a Christmas party two miles away.
State police believe the boy was hit by an unknown vehicle after wandering off from the party Friday night.
His body was found after midnight Saturday, nearly four hours after guests at the party realized he was missing.
Evidence indicates the boy walked west along North River Road where the party was held, then down a cane field road toward the highway.
