FLATLANDS - A missing man with autism was found thanks to a good Samaritan that recognized him from seeing him on News 12.

Christopher McLaren, 24, was missing for three days. He had last been seen with his caregiver but left when she was taking a nap.

An East Flatbush man spotted McLaren on the A train in Queens. He notified a conductor, who alerted police.

McLaren was examined at a hospital and reunited with his family.
