A teenager with autism who was reported missing was found the following day at an airport in Florida, officials have said, after she got past security using someone else’s boarding pass.
Sade Subbs was last seen at around 10 p.m. on January 9 in the area of Lake Jackson Circle in Apopka, Florida, the Apopka Police Department said on Facebook. The 15-year-old was found a day later at Orlando International Airport.
A report by the Orlando Police Department said the teenager told officers she had taken “several buses” from Apopka to get to the airport and that she “just wanted to fly on an airplane.” She also claimed to Orlando police she had used a drink coupon found on the floor to pass through a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) checkpoint. A TSA spokesperson told Newsweek that was not true.
