(WNBC-TV) The U.S. Department of Justice says it will fund voluntary tracking devices for children with autism or other conditions that put them at risk for fleeing their caregivers.

Sen. Charles Schumer announced the agreement Wednesday. It comes after the remains of autistic teenager Avonte Oquendo were found in the East River.

Schumer called Sunday for legislation to provide GPS tracking devices for autistic children and others with a tendency to bolt from parents or caregivers.
