Aurora police found a developmentally disabled teen who went missing Monday morning.

Benjamin Isaiah Martin was reported found and unharmed shortly before 4:30 p.m. Monday. The 15-year-old is autistic and has been known to wander, police spokeswoman Crystal McCoy said.

Martin was reported missing after leaving Hinkley High School, 1250 N. Chambers Road, 7:40 a.m. Monday. He went missing around the same time last year, McCoy said.
