If you live here in New York City, you can’t walk anywhere right now without seeing a picture of this little boy. It’s heartbreaking.
May he be found safe and returned to his folks who are no doubt suffering.
This isn’t a hoax people. His story has been on the news almost every night since his disappearance. I just watched the report a few seconds ago and thought I should share this on my dash.
If you live in this area, keep an eye out.
Remember, he is severely autistic and can not communicate and has no survival skills. He can not ask for help. He can not tell you his name or where he’s from. If you find him you are to get a hold of him so he does not wander away again until police arrive.
