UPDATE: David Morrison was found safe on Monday, Jan. 21. He has been reunited with his family. 


The Fort Mill Police Department is asking for the public's help in locating a missing teenager who they say is high-functioning autistic. 

David Morrison, 16, left his home Friday afternoon, Jan. 18, and has not returned as of Monday morning. He is described as 5 foot 7 inches tall, 135 pounds, with short dirty blond hair and hazel eyes.

Morrison was last seen wearing a blue, green, and white long-sleeved shirt displaying an emblem of the Earth on the front, blue jeans, and black basketball shoes.  

According to police, Morrison is considered to be high-functioning autistic, and normally wears glasses, although he apparently was not in possession of them at the time that he left home.

Within the past 24 hours, he is reported to have been seen at several locations within the area, including:

  • The Waffle House at 1014 Regent Parkway in Fort Mill on Jan. 19
  • The Carolina Place Mall Jan. 20, although these reports remain unconfirmed at present

He was also reportedly seen at Nation Ford High School at 4:30 p.m. on Jan. 19 where he was recognized by a teacher at that school.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Fort Mill Police Department at 803-547-2022.
