NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police found a missing 9-year-old boy Wednesday afternoon, more than 24 hours after he vanished in East Harlem.
Zhaundu Bradley Jr. was located late in the afternoon by NYPD Transit Bureau Community Affairs Unit officers at a basketball court at First Avenue and 93rd Street, police told CBS 2. He was in good condition, and will be taken to a local police precinct.
As CBS 2’s Alice Gainer reported, a flier indicated that Zhaundu had last been seen on East 111th street around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.
He was staying at the George Washington Carver Houses public housing development on East 99th Street, but goes back and forth between East Harlem and North Carolina, Gainer reported.
Police earlier in the day were handing out fliers and canvassing the area near the housing development, CBS 2’s Janelle Burrell reported earlier. Police also sent out canine units to try to trace the boy’s scent.
