NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A Manhattan woman received the best gift a mom could ask for on Mother’s Day.

Debra Seaton said her 16-year-old son, Jake, returned home Sunday after disappearing from their Kips Bay apartment around 2:30 p.m. Thursday afternoon.

“I don’t need any gift, I don’t need anything. I have Jake home,” Seaton told 1010 WINS. “From here on forward, as long as all my children are happy and healthy and safe, that’s the best Mother’s Day gift I can ever have.”

Police from the 17th Precinct had distributed fliers with a photo of the teenager throughout the neighborhood and his family also set up a Facebook page to help in the search.

It is unclear where the teen, who may suffer from depression, had been for the three days he was missing.
