Aaron Pena Wiki – Aaron Pena Biography

Authorities offered their condolences after the search for a non-verbal five-year-old autistic boy ended in tragedy. The body of young Aaron Peña was recovered from a pond near his Orange County home on Thanksgiving morning, November 24. Her devastated mother, Melissa Stanton, told Orange County Sheriff’s deputies how her differently-abled son walked away from her home on Wednesday, November 23.

Her house located near Moss Park Road and State Road 417. She said Pena left through the back door of the house around 12:45 p.m. m. Stanton said she had been working from home and realized at some point that she couldn’t hear her son in her background. “I wasn’t hearing any sort of laughing sound or singing over and over again, like repetitive songs, he does that, or he usually creates a scenario where he talks to himself about the birds and the colors and the songs that he sees on YouTube. she tearfully told WKMG News 6.

The heartbroken mother recalled how she checked her children’s rooms but she couldn’t find Peña anywhere. She eventually realized that the back door had been opened. Stanton said the door is usually locked, but she believes her son figured out how to open it.

The concerned father immediately reported the boy missing, prompting officers and neighbors to start a search near the home. Authorities said the boy was last seen wearing a brown long-sleeved shirt with a bear holding a boombox and light-colored pajama pants with a dinosaur print and no shoes.

Stanton said Pena was the youngest of her three children. She couldn’t stop crying Wednesday night as she prayed that they would find Peña safe and bring her home. “He’s also drawn to bodies of water, so I went straight to the pool area and pond,” she said. “He has a little scar on his forehead and he has a perfect smile,” she added.

Sheriff’s deputies conducted an extensive search, even sounding a nearby pond with sonar. In addition, they stopped all vehicles leaving the gated community of Nona Terrace where the boy lives, hoping to find any trace of him. Neighbors, as well as strangers, joined the search for the child.

“I just said, ‘Oh my gosh, I need to get on my bike and grab a flashlight.’ We were on the bike and we said, ‘We’re going to try to find him,'” neighbor Heidi Lear told WESH. “The last thing anyone wants is to lose their child, especially before Thanksgiving,” she added.

Tragically, just before 1 a.m. Thursday, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office reported that the boy was found dead. “It is with a heavy heart that we must report that Aaron Pena was found, deceased, in a body of water not far from his home. We are grieving the loss of him and our prayers are with his family,” the sheriff’s office announced in a Facebook update. Authorities had not released further details at the time of publication.
