Body found during search for missing autistic boy

TEXAS CITY, TX (NBC) - The body of a boy has been found in Texas in the area where dive teams were searching for a missing autistic boy.

The seven-year-old boy's mother reported him missing in Texas City Sunday afternoon just across the bay from Galveston.

Police say there were no reports of suspicious activity when little Xavion Young walked out of his house Sunday.

Dive teams searching a retention pond behind the family's apartment Monday found the body of a little boy.

Police haven't identified the body, but it was located just feet from where Xavion was last seen.

His mother says he's never run off before.

Texas City Police Department will hold a news conference this afternoon to disclose the identity of the body found.
