Detroit —Police are searching for a 28-year-old man who is autistic, bipolar and schizophrenic who has been missing since Friday.

Antonio Jackson was last seen at his home in Detroit, near 7 Mile and Schoenherr around 9 a.m. Friday, said his mother Constance Jackson.

“I am so scared,” she said. “I want my baby back.”

Police Officer Lestine Jackson, (no relation), said the man is in immediate need of his medication.

“We’ve exhausted all avenues in trying to locate this young man,” said Officer Jackson Saturday, who said the search continues.

This is the third time the man has left home.
