DEARBORN, Mich. - Dearborn Police are looking for a missing 16-year-old who ran away from his home on the 4600 Block of Schlaff on Saturday.

The teen's parents told police they were awakened by a noise inside their home to find their teenage son, Charles Foster, leaving the house around 10:30 p.m.

The parents were unable to catch the teen as he ran northbound from the home. Foster suffers from Autism, bi-polar disorder and mood swings.   

He has short hair, wears small frame glasses, is 5-foot-2 and weighs 110 pounds. He appears much younger than his age. 

Foster was last seen wearing a beige collared short sleeve shirt with horizontal stripes, dark shoes and glasses. 

The family does not believe the teen will harm himself or others.

He has run away in the past and will frequent restaurants, gas stations or will beg for food.

Anyone who has information on the teen's whereabouts is asked to call the Dearborn Police at 313-943-2241.
