PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Philadelphia police are seeking the public's assistance in locating 17-year-old Isaiah Harris.

Harris was last seen at his residence on the 2100 block of Taney Terrace.

Police say he attended class at Audenried Charter School, located in the 3300 block of Tasker Street, but did not return home after school.

Harris is described as 5 foot 9 inches, thin build, brown eyes and has a short, black afro. He was last seen wearing khaki pants, a white shirt and carrying a black book bag.

Police say Isaiah is autisitic and it is possible he did not return home due to being disciplined earlier in the day at school.
