FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — Fayetteville police are looking for a teenager last seen Saturday morning in the Montclair subdivision.
Family and friends are a staple at the Hill household, especially since Adrianne Jivan "A.J." Hill went missing. Hill is described as a black male, 6 feet 2 inches tall, with a slim build and medium complexion. He is mildly autistic.
A.J.'s mother, Vickie, said she does not think anyone kidnapped him, but since he is autistic, she feels he is still in danger.
"One of the characteristics of autism, they have no sense of danger," Vickie said. "Danger could be sitting right there in their face and they don't realize they're in danger. That's what I'm concerned about the most."
A.J.'s family believes he took his bike for a ride and got lost. They have posted flyers and searched neighborhoods.
"There's so many things that could have happened to him. We're just trying to hope that there is nothing wrong with him," said Tiara Hill, A.J.'s sister.
Hill was last seen wearing a blue V-neck shirt, blue jeans and camouflage Timberland boots. He was riding a red bicycle. Anyone with information on Hill's whereabouts is asked to call Fayetteville police at
