Justice Department to Offer GPS Devices for Autistic Children Following Death of 14-Year-Old

Children suffering from severe autism and similar conditions should soon be eligible for GPS tracking devices paid for by taxpyaers, Time reports.

New York Sen.Charles Schumer said the idea is to help parents find their children if they stray off.

The devices from the Justice Department cost about $85 each, Time wrote.

The news comes after a severely autistic 14-year-old, Avonte Oquendo, went missing in October and was later found dead in the East River.

Schumer said the goal is to secure long-term funding.
