BANGOR, Maine — A boy with autism who wandered off from school Monday and was reported missing for the second time in just over a month is home safe, according to police officials.

A good Samaritan found the boy on outer Union Street at about 11:30 p.m., Bangor police Sgt. Tim Cotton said Tuesday in an email.

“The man picked him up and called us,” Cotton said. “He was reunited with his mother a short time later.”

Joshua Hogan, 13, left the Cohen School on Garland Street at around 2 p.m. Monday, so he was missing for more than nine hours.

Hogan also was reported missing on March 19. He had left home the night before and was found walking on Wilson Street in Brewer shortly after Bangor police issued a missing person alert.
