Young Boy With Autism Found Safe After He Wandered Away From A Davenport House In The Middle Of The Night

On August 22, 2023, at around 2:55 a.m. the Polk County Sheriff’s Office Missing Persons Unit began searching for 3-year-old Thomas Owen Santos who was reported missing in the Acorn Court area of unincorporated Davenport.

Thomas’ family was visiting from out of town. Family members last heard and checked on Thomas at around 1:00 a.m. A family member noticed the front door of the residence wide open at approximately 2:45 a.m., and the child was not found to be in the home. The family called the Sheriff’s Office to report the child missing.

The PCSO Aviation Unit, Drone Unit, Marine Unit, and K-9 Unit (with a bloodhound) also responded and assisted in the search.

Thankfully, at around 7:20 a.m., detectives located Thomas, who was safe and sleeping on a neighbor’s porch less than a half-mile from where the family was staying.

Thomas was returned safely to his family.
