Call 911, call concierge/security and have them search all the security cams and lock down the building while I call SO and search the entire building.

This!
Then I would call my ex and contact other people.

This. My 4 yo has autism and is a wanderer, he has escaped before and this is what I did.

If the doors and windows were still closed and locked I would probably turn the house upside down first. If I didn't find them within 2-3 minutes, I would grab my phone and run up and down the street while calling 911

I ask because my neighbor's son just went missing. She came out of the house, it was clear that she just woke up, and she just walked around the building yelling his name for close to 15 minutes. She then sat on the stairs waiting. I'm not sure if she called a neighbor or not, but either way the boy is back now.



When DS got out I freaked out, called the cops while running around the neighborhood like a f**king loon. I was just curious of what anyone else would do in the situation.

I sure as hell wouldn't have been sitting unless I passed the eff out from screaming.

!!!!!
That strikes me as really odd that she seemed so calm :? Maybe she did call someone and knew he was on his way?

That is so scary! I worked at a daycare and one of the parents woke up to the police bringing her son back. She put him in the backyard and took a freaking nap! He walked down a very busy street with their dog and then across an even busier street and was found by the police at Auto Zone.

I actually had this happen to me 3 days ago with my 3yr old son.
I was upstairs putting LO to sleep. SO was having a shower. I came downstairs and noticed it was a lil too quiet.
The front door was wide open.....along with the front gate. (We live right on a main road)
My heart instantly started pounding.
I ran outside screaming his name.....looking left and right.
Instinct told me to run right....so I did.
Luckily I found him out the back of our complex playing with our 8yr old DD.



She plays out there often, but DS isn't allowed as he's not old enough.
DD had gone out and left the front gate open.



I honestly don't know what I would've done if I hadn't found him. I hate to even think of that thought.

When DS got out CPS paid us a visit. Everything checked out and we were cleared of neglect, but the social worker told us that she has had to report to a family who has a 10 year old girl with Autism, who is a wanderer as well. She said the family has had to lock her in her room at night because she would break out at 1-2 o'clock in the morning. I can only imagine how that is, I'm still a wreck about DS getting out and it's been a year since.

This happened a few days ago, only I wasn't sleeping, just cleaning and I noticed I hadn't seen/heard Emmy at all so I:
Grabbed my phone, yelled her name inside the house after checking each room, run outside with Jaslyn, Yell her name and look right and left down my street, behind our house in the alley, go back inside and realize she is in her sister's crib...sleeping.
But after going outside and yelling for her for about a minute, back inside and still nothing, I would be on the phone with the cops asap

Call the cops. My 5 year old is very anxious about going outside alone, she wouldn't just wander off. I'd be losing my shit.
