21-year-old Ryan Hanna was located safely this evening and is no longer considered a missing person.



Detectives from the Portland Police Bureau's Missing Persons Unit are asking for the public's help in locating 21-year-old Ryan Hanna, who is considered a vulnerable adult, as he is mildly autistic and cognitively challenged.

Hanna lives in a foster care facility in the 3100 block of Southeast 115th Avenue, and was last seen at about 7:45 a.m. this morning, May 13, 2013. Hanna was waiting for a TriMet bus nearby his residence, that he regularly takes on his own, to go to school in the Gresham area. He did not arrive to school today, which was described as being highly unusual.

Detectives have learned that Hanna does have a prior history of going missing, and that he has previously tried to leave the Portland area on his own, but has needed assistance to return to his residence.

Hanna is described as a 21-year-old, mixed-race male, with a medium complexion, curly brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a blue hoodie, and often wears the hood up over his head.

Anyone who knows of Hanna's whereabouts is asked to call 9-1-1. Anyone with additional information about this case is asked to contact Detective Mike Weinstein, at (503) 823-0446.
