An autistic 13-year-old boy who went missing Tuesday from a relative's home in Eastpointe has been found, police said.

Marquise Tolbert returned home, officials said. They also said they are investigating to determine what happened.

On Tuesday, an endangered missing advisory was issued for Tolbert, who had been last seen at about 4:45 p.m. in the 2200 block of Pleasant, when he got into a black pickup truck, possibly a Chevrolet Silverado, Michigan State Police said.

"Marquise has a cognitive impairment and his family does not know anyone who has this style truck," Eastpointe police said on Facebook.

The truck the youth was seen leaving in.
