The police have released a new picture of missing autistic teen Avonte Oquendo, who disappeared from his Long Island City school two weeks ago.
The picture, which includes a photo of the shirt he was wearing the day he disappeared, was tweeted by the NYPD this afternoon.
The picture is an updated photo of Avonte and includes the gray and white striped shirt he was wearing that day.
The police, family and concerned citizens have been combing the city for Avonte, who is autistic and cannot speak, since he vanished.
Avonte has been missing since Oct. 4, and was last seen leaving his school at 1-50 51 Ave. wearing a gray striped shirt, black jeans and black sneakers. He is 5-foot-3 and weighs 125 pounds.
Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
Unbelievably sad. I cannot imagine the torment the family is going through.
