Authorities initially said that Avonte Oquendo, the missing boy, had been found. But within minutes of the announcement, police said they had made a mistake and that the child was not Oquendo.
Oquendo, who has autism, was last seen leaving Center Boulevard School, which is located at 1-50 51st Avenue, around 12:30 p.m Friday. Police have been searching subway tunnels and local hospitals, according to reports, after he didn’t appear over the weekend.
