Where is Brandon? Search continues for missing autistic man

TYLER - A Tyler man has been missing since Oct. 23 and his family is asking for all the help they can get to bring him home.

Brandon Harward, 32, was last seen walking west on Shiloh Road about 2 p.m. Monday.

He is 5-feet-7-inches tall, weighs 130 pounds, is blond-haired and balding, and has blue eyes. He was last seen wearing a gray shirt with blue jeans and black dress shoes.

Harward is diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, which is an autism spectrum disorder.

He moved to Tyler more than two months ago and worked at Walmart on Troup Highway near Shiloh Road and lived at an apartment on Shiloh Road.

He left without any of his belongings including his bicycle, wallet, phone and keys.

“He’s not thinking because he never would have left any of those things behind,” his mother, Celeste Robison, said. “He’s in a breakdown mode. He’s completely lost and without any money and maybe not even the knowledge of how to get home. We need to find him. He can’t find us. We need to find him.”

Harward has ties to Utah, particularly the Salt Lake City area, and may be trying to travel to Mexico based on an interaction he had with someone prior to going missing.

If anyone encounters Harward or has information about where he is or may be going, please contact Detective Andy Erbaugh at 903-531-1099 or Tyler Police Department at 903-531-1000.
