Bridgeport family calls for help finding emotional support cat

A Bridgeport family is asking for the public's help finding their autistic son's emotional support pet.



Fourteen-year-old John DeSouza says he got his cat Ben a year ago, but Ben has been missing since Monday.



The family says Ben ran off while he and John were playing outside their house on Overland Avenue.



DeSouza says he hopes anyone who may have seen Ben will help.
