 A teenage Fort Worth boy with autism is missing in Mississippi and has not been seen since last week.

The family of 14-year-old Nathan Covarrubias says he was last seen at his boarding school in far northern Mississippi, about four or five miles from the Tennessee line.

Surveillance video shows him leaving the campus on Friday and walking north in the direction of Tennessee.

His parents say, in addition to his autism, Nathan has also been diagnosed as bi-polar with ADD and "disruptive mood regulation disorder."
