DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. – A man with autism who went missing after leaving his school in Yonkers Wednesday afternoon was found in Dobbs Ferry on Thursday, News 12 Westchester reports.

Officials say Jose Leon, 20, of Queens, disappeared after leaving the Greenburgh Academy on Shonnard Place Wednesday afternoon and was found at about 4 a.m. Thursday on Palisade Avenue in Dobbs Ferry.

The school's superintendent said Leon told him that he got confused after dismissal and ended up walking with the wrong group of students before wandering off, according to the report.

Several schools in the area hold dismissal at the same time and Greenburgh Academy has implemented new dismissal protocols to avoid future incidents, according to the report.
