A man with autism who went missing Thursday morning from a group home in northwest suburban Des Plaines was found in Chicago’s North Side Buena Park neighborhood.

Brandon Young, 36, was last seen about 6:30 a.m., according to an endangered missing person alert from Des Plaines police. He was apparently able to open a kitchen window, squeeze through it and run away north from the group home near Golf and Rand roads in Des Plaines.

He was found at a Walgreens store in the 900 block of West Irving Park Road, police said Thursday afternoon.

Police said he was “in good health and is in the process of being returned home.”
