LONG ISLAND CITY - It's been 42 days since 14-year-old Avonte Oquendo went missing from his school in Long Island City and authorities are no closer to finding the missing autistic boy.
Police have scoured subway tunnels, conducted searches via air and water and have posted missing person posters throughout all five boroughs. A photo recently surfaced of a boy riding a subway train, but it turned out not to be Oquendo.
The city's Special Commission of Investigations is looking into how Oquendo was able to leave school without being stopped. In addition, the Department of Education is taking new measures to make sure something like this does not happen again.
The reward for information leading to the teen's whereabouts has reached $95,000.
