SACRAMENTO — The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department is asking for the public’s help locating a missing 11-year-old boy with autism.

Nathaniel “Nathan” Lasater was reported missing by his family. He was last seen at his home on San Marcos Way in North Highlands.

Nathaniel is considered at-risk because of his age. He has high-functioning autism and needs medication, according to the sheriff’s department.
