Woodbury vulnerable teen goes missing again, police seek public's help


Woodbury police are asking for the public's help in locating a 19-year-old autistic man that's been missing since Wednesday.

The Patch reports Kyle Konkler walked away from his home along White Eagle Drive in Woodbury and never returned. Police are concerned he could be in danger and doesn't have a cell phone, the Pioneer Press reports.

In April, Konkler disappeared after leaving his job in White Bear Lake. He was located more than a day later in Minneapolis.

Konkler is reported to be high-functioning on the autism spectrum. Police say he is about 6 feet tall, 215 pounds with brown hair and hazel eyes. He's also known to wear a baseball cap.

The Pioneer Press says anyone who sees Konkler should not try to approach him because he might run away. Police are advising the public to call Detective Paul Torguson at 651-714-3600 with any information.
