Light is described as a white male, 5'8, 140 lbs with brown hair and eyes. He was last seen wearing a red sweatshirt with dark colored shorts. 

Light is diagnosed with autism and schizophrenia, and has a history of becoming physically aggressive towards others when off from his medication. 

According to police, Light is without his meds at this time.

His family has expressed concern for his welfare since Kaleb also has a history of self-mutilation and suicidal thoughts.

He is believed to be on foot somewhere in the east valley, police say. 

Please contact the Mesa Police Department if you have any information regarding Light's whereabouts.
