A Waukesha boy with autism was found safe this week after getting lost. 
 
The story has an Oconto Falls mom speaking out about technology she says could save lives in similar searches.
 
She uses a GPS device that she can attach to her son's clothes gives, which her alerts through an app when he leaves home or school off schedule.  
 
"It gives a parent piece of mind knowing that no matter where he goes we will know where he is at," said Jessica Behnke, the mother of a child with Autism.
 
The device the Behnke's use is called Angel Sense. It was developed by a family who lost their son with autism.
