    Search for missing Rochester teen with autism continues

    upload_2018-3-9_10-57-5.jpeg upload_2018-3-9_10-57-12.jpeg

    A missing child alert has been issued for a Rochester teen.

    The family of 14-year-old Treyvan Rowe tell News10NBC he has autism, and they are extremely concerned for his safety. He is verbal, but is not likely to speak with strangers.

    Police say Rowe rode the bus to school Thursday morning and got off near School No. 12 on South Ave. around 7:30 a.m. The teen did not enter the school, according to police.

    Detoya McCoy, Rowe's cousin, tells News10NBC the teen lost his phone Thursday morning, which upset him. He looked for it on the bus, and got even more upset. When he got off the bus, he walked away from the school. By the time he calmed down, he may have realized he was lost, according to McCoy.

    Rowe's family says they didn't know he wasn't at school Thursday until his siblings got off the bus without him. Since then, police and the school district have been reviewing surveillance video, canvassing neighborhoods and Mt. Hope Cemetery.

    At around 5:15 p.m. Thursday, police received a call from a boy saying he was lost in a cemetery.

    "I’ve got a whole lot of people out here searching all over for him," McCoy said. "It’s a lot of help out here. which I’m grateful for."

    Police, volunteers searching for missing 14-year-old boy in Rochester

    Rochester Police are searching for a missing 14-year-old boy with autism in Rochester.

    According to police, 14-year-old Treyvan Rowe got on the bus to go to School No. 12 early Thursday.

    He was last seen getting off the school bus at 7:30 a.m. Thursday, but police say he did not enter the school. He did not return home.

    Treyvan was last seen wearing a black nautical coat with fur trim, jeans, and red Nike sneakers.

    Police say they conducted a search in the area of Highland Park and Mt. Hope Cemetery Thursday night. Dozens of volunteers continued to search the park Friday morning and afternoon.

    According to Treyvan Rowe's cousin, DeToya McCoy, Treyvan does not know the area well and has never walked away from school in the past.

    AutismUp, a local non-profit that serves individuals and families with autism, is asking for volunteers to meet at the Al Sigl main entrance at the corner of Elmwood and South Avenues. They will be helping to search for Rowe in areas of Highland Park.

    Investigators say new information suggests that crews look for him in wooded areas. Officers and members of City Security have been searching these areas, assisted by a helicopter from the State Police.

    New surveillance photo released of missing teen

    The family of a missing Rochester teen and numerous volunteers are searching wooded areas near School 12 on Friday morning as police search in nearby Mt. Hope Cemetery.

    The City School District seventh-grader is high-functioning autistic, according to his family.

    "He's never done something like this before," said Treyvan's cousin Detoya McCoy of Rochester. "We think a trigger that set this off was him losing his cell phone."

    McCoy said it appeared that Treyvan lost his phone on the way to school and with it missing, became upset and did not follow his normal routine.

    "Instead of going into the school, he turned right going down South Avenue and started walking," she said, citing surveillance video in the area.

    Treyvan on Thursday traveled to school with his younger sister, who did not immediately notice her brother veer off course.

    McCoy said police informed the family that around 5:15 p.m., they received a 911 call from a child saying he was lost in the cemetery. The identity of the child was not confirmed. Rochester police on Thursday evening searched nearby Mt. Hope Cemetery.

    "It's a very, very scary, frightening thought," she said. "To think that anybody's child is out here in this cold weather alone and scared is very frightening...Everyone's just worried sick."

    McCoy said the family is worried about Treyvan as he is a quiet boy who will likely not reply to anyone who approaches him.

    "He's very quiet," she said. "He's a good kid who loves video games."

    Rochester police investigator Jackie Shuman on Friday morning said Treyvan has not yet been located. Police continue to search for Treyvan but declined to outline specific investigative steps of the investigation.

    "We are doing everything possible in an attempt to bring him home safe," Shuman said.

    Maybe that's what his little sister thought he was wearing? Or a rush by the source to get info out before it was confirmed?
    Definitely wearing black jacket, black hoodie, blue jeans. Can't see his shoes but most say red. I don't think he changed clothes.

    How would Treyvan have called from the cemetery if he lost his cell phone?

    I was wondering that, too, unless there's an office there.

    Search for missing city teen Trevyan Rowe continues; volunteers look near School 12

    It's been more than a day since 14-year-old Trevyan Rowe traveled to the school at 999 South Ave, but never entered the building, according to Rochester police. Trevyan did not return home.

    Officers on Friday morning returned to search in the 196-acre cemetery at Mount Hope and Elmwood avenues in Rochester. The family is searching for Trevyan in nearby Highland Park.

    Volunteers, including numerous parents, gathered at Highland Park Friday to help with the search.

    Lisa Ponticello, marketing and development director for Autism Up, a Webster-based agency that offers autism support program and services, said the agency has more than 30 volunteers helping search in Highland Park. Volunteers are meeting at the Al Sigl Center, 1000 Elmwood Ave, she said.

    Volunteers walked through nearby neighborhoods, knocking on doors, she said. Volunteers were given maps with places to search and flyers to show neighbors what Trevyan looks like.

    RPD called in its scuba team on Friday afternoon, but Shuman said an all-clear was issued late Friday afternoon.

    Velma Handy, Trevyan's aunt urged the community to check their garages, sheds, unlocked cars, underneath cars, and to check trees — he loved to climb trees, Handy said.

    "If anyone approaches him just say that he's not in trouble or anything, just say that your mom or your aunt, want you to come home, we love you and we just want you to come home," she said.

    Missing teen day 3: Police scuba team may search Genesee River for Trevyan Rowe, media update at 2 p.m.

    Rochester police and a small army of volunteers plan to resume their search Sunday for Trevyan Rowe, a 14-year-old with autism who has been missing since Thursday morning.

    The Rochester Police Department's SCUBA team, which previously looked for Trevyan in a pond, may search areas of the Genesee River on Sunday if they believe conditions make the operation safe and useful.

    The focus area for any search would be between the Ford Street Bridge and the Frederick Douglass Susan B. Anthony Bridge.

    Several citizen callers to 911 saw someone near the river that may have matched the youth's description, Deputy Police Chief Mark Simmons said Saturday night at a press briefing.

    Adult volunteers were asked to meet at Door 5 of the Al Sigl Center on Elmwood Avenue at 12 noon Sunday if they wish to help. They will be asked to hand out flyers in high-traffic areas, but they will not participate in organized grid searches.

    Hundreds showed up Saturday to comb the Highland Park, Mt. Hope, South Wedge and other neighborhoods.

    Trevyan Rowe: School district confirms it did not contact mother about missing teen

    Trevyan Rowe, the 14-year-old autistic youth who walked away from his Rochester school Thursday morning, had a full 10 hours before anyone noticed he was gone.

    It is not clear if school officials noticed he was not present. But the school did not notify the boy's mother, Carrie Houston, as they should have, Rochester City School District officials said Sunday. They are still reviewing how that happened.

    It was not until Trevyan failed to arrive on the bus that normally brings him home in late afternoon that his family realized something was wrong, both Rosner and district spokesman Carlos Garcia said Sunday.

    A small army of volunteers headed out Sunday for the third straight day of passing out leaflets with Trevyan's photo and searching for the youth. An estimated 1,000 people turned out to search Saturday.

    Sunday's volunteers were buoyed to a degree by unconfirmed sightings Saturday of someone who looked like Treyvan in the Park Avenue neighborhood, at Cobbs Hill, and near East High School.

    "That's hopeful and promising for us and his family," said Rachel Rosner, the education and support director of Autism Up who is helping coordinate the volunteer search.

    Rochester police are continuing to scour city neighbors for the young man, but also were considering deploying their scuba team to look for his body in the Genesee River.

    The Rochester Police Department's scuba team will "assess portions of the Genesee River to determine if it is safe and practical to conduct a search of possible areas where 911 callers possibly observed someone matching Treyvan's description," Rochester Police Deputy Chief Mark Simmons said Saturday night at a press briefing.

    Hundreds search Genesee River for Trevyan Rowe, missing Upstate NY teen with autism

    Hundreds of volunteers have been combing the city of Rochester and areas around the Genesee River since last week in search of Treyvan Rowe, a missing 14-year-old boy with autism who was reported missing on Thursday.

    Volunteers headed out early Sunday to distribute leaflets with Treyvan's photo for the third-straight day of searching, the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle reported.

    Based on the amount of time that elapsed between when Treyvan disappeared and when he was reported missing, authorities in Rochester say he could be almost anywhere.

    According to the D&C, a full 10 hours passed between when Treyvan arrived at East High School around 7:30 a.m. on Thursday and when his mother, Carrie Houston, called the school asking why her son hadn't gotten off the bus at 5:30 p.m. The school had failed to report Treyvan's absence to his mother as they should have, and officials are reviewing why that happened.

    Rosner believes he could be running scared because he knows people are looking for him.

    She said he is smart and physically fit, and believes he could be capable of surviving several nights in freezing temperatures while he roams.

    Have the parents put out a video plea to him? Maybe since many fast food places and quick marts have tvs running 24/7 with the local news, maybe he would see a plea to him telling him that they have his phone or can get him a new one or something else that may entice him back. Maybe they could tell him what to say to an officer or how to call 911 or something that he will understand. It says that he is high-functioning, so I would think that means he can follow instruction and is likely very smart, but socially inept/awkward. Maybe hearing it directly from his family would help.

    Authorities say that a body pulled from the Genesee River shortly before dark on Sunday matches the description of Trevyan Rowe, the teenager hundreds of people had been searching for since Thursday night.

    "At this time we do not have a positive identification,” said Rochester Police Chief Michael Ciminelli. “However, the body that was taken from the river is a male with a physical and clothing description consistent with Trevyan Rowe."

    About 5:30 p.m. Sunday, members of the Rochester Police Department and Monroe County Sheriff's Office scuba teams used side-scan sonar equipment to find a body in the river, according to Ciminelli.
