NEW YORK (PIX11) – Police are asking for the public’s help in locating an autistic teen who walked away from his family home in Marlboro, NJ, on Tuesday.

Michael Karwan, 19, was last seen by his parents at their home on School Road West dressed in a dark colored leather jacket, blue jeans, a light-colored button down shirt and green shoes.
