Search continues for missing autistic man

The search continues today (Thursday) for an autistic man missing from a camp in Burnett County.

About 300 volunteers tried Wednesday to find Keith Kennedy, 25, of Shoreview, Minn.

He wandered away from the Trade Lake Camp near Grantsburg last Sunday night.

His kidneys are in danger of shutting down because he doesn't have his anti-rejection drugs from a 1995 transplant.

Kennedy's mother, Linda, is among those going through a large wooded area at the camp which serves developmentally-disabled adults.

A horseback team joined the search Wednesday, along with boats on a nearby river.

Officials say Kennedy knows only four words, and he won't respond to a call.
