Jorian Cole was last seen on Nov. 12 at 10 a.m. at the Pumpkin Park Campground, according to authorities.

A description from police said he was last seen wearing a multi-colored baseball hat with a green marijuana leaf and may be wearing dark shorts and an anime-style shirt. Cole recently shaved his eyebrows off and they have just started to grow back in.

According to LSP, Cole moved to the Pumpkin Park Campground two days ago with his family from Little Rock, AR, and is unfamiliar with the area. He was last seen walking east through the campground towards North Billville Road.

LSP said Cole has been diagnosed with autism and has a medical condition that causes him to have seizures and may impair his judgment.
