NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - The NOPD is asking for the public's help in locating a 13-year-old boy missing from New Orleans East.

Joshua Harrison was last seen getting off a school bus Friday morning in front of Schaumburg Elementary School in the 9500 block of Grant Street.

At approximately 7:45 a.m., school officials reviewed video surveillance that showed Harrison getting off of the bus and walking in the opposite direction away from the school. Harrison has autism and school officials believe he might be heading downtown to attend the parades.

Harrison has not been seen or heard from since.

Harrison is described as a black male approximately 5'0". He was last seen wearing navy blue pants, a grey uniform shirt, a purple and gold LSU jacket and black shoes.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts should contact Seventh District Detective Perrin Gaines at (504) 658-6070 or the New Orleans Police Department at (504) 821-2222.
