NYPD May Reduce Cops Searching For Missing Boy Avonte Oquendo

(Jen Chung) Avonte Oquendo, who is 14, autistic and unable to verbally communicate, has been missing since October 4, when he was last seen at his Queens school. There's a $90,000 reward for information leading to his safe return, but now the NYPD may be starting to dial back the resources dedicated to the search.

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said there have been no credible sightings for the boy so far. The Post reports that the NYPD has "devoted helicopters, divers and more than 100 cops each day to run down more than 200 tips and conduct interviews that could lead to the missing 14-year-old."
