After a week of searching, a Brooklyn family is still looking for clues in the disappearance of 14-year-old Shawn Davenport.  

The teen has been missing for five days. He is autistic and also takes medication. Family members have begun putting up posters, hoping that someone might see him.

"You could say something to him and he might even run away from you. That's my main concern. You understand, his father been out looking for him ever since," said Tracey Evans, Davenport's aunt.

The Brooklyn teen has been staying with his mother's cousin in a foster home.
