NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A prayer vigil was held Sunday asking for the safe return of Avonte Oquendo, the 14-year-old autistic boy who has been missing for more than three weeks.
As 1010 WINS’ Gary Baumgarten reported, it will be four weeks this coming Friday since Avonte disappeared. His photo has been plastered all over the city, but no one has apparently seen him.
Avonte is 5-foot-3 and weighs 125 pounds. The severely autistic and nonverbal 14-year-old boy was last seen wearing a gray striped shirt, black jeans and black shoes.
