CYPRESS, Texas — Authorities have temporarily suspended the search for a teen who went missing last Wednesday.

According to Texas Equusearch, the organization will suspend the search until investigators discover a more specific area where 19-year-old Nahum Legaspi could have gone.

According to the Cypress Fairbanks ISD Police Department, Legaspi, a high school student with autism, was last seen on April 26 near Cypress Ranch High School. Authorities said he is not in good health.

Authorities said all suspected areas have been searched twice. A helicopter from the DPS with a high-tech locating system and tracking dogs were used to locate Nahum. Both search methods were unsuccessful.

Nahum was last seen wearing a blue t-shirt, green shorts, and beige shoes.

If anyone has any details about Nahum’s disappearance, please call the Cypress Fairbanks ISD Police Department at (281) 897-4337, or Investigator Hewett at (281) 517-6053.
