Avonte Oquendo, a 14-year-old boy with autism, has been missing from Queens since October 4th. When I went to Fort Tryon park last week I don’t remember seeing missing signs. But when I went on Monday they were everywhere, and I mean everywhere. Except not here in my neighborhood, I just realized. I wonder why that is?
