Halton Regional Police have confirmed they have found an autistic teen from Georgetown, Ont., who went missing overnight.

Adam Thompson, 14, had been missing since late Sunday evening.

His father, Dave Thompson, told CBC News that the boy ran away from his home at about 10:30 p.m. Sunday.

The two had argued about his internet use, his father said.

Adam Thompson's parents said he was wearing only a T-shirt, pajamas and socks when he left home.

The teenager was found late Monday afternoon, at a location in Brampton, Ont., about six kilometres from his Georgetown home.

A CN Rail worker spotted Thompson on railway tracks near Heritage Road and Bovaird Drive West in Brampton at about 3:50 p.m. on Monday.

Police were called and they were able to confirm that Thompson had been found.

Halton Regional Police Insp. Jackie Gordon told reporters that Thompson will be checked out by doctors, but is "doing okay".
