Avonte Oquendo has been missing for two weeks. The last time anyone saw the 14-year-old boy was when he was at his school in Queens—a surveillance video shows him leaving the Center Boulevard School at 1-50 51 Avenue on Friday, October 4th. Now, the NYPD has released an image of the exact shirt that Avonte was wearing, in hopes it'll help spark someone in the public to notice or remember something.

Avonte has autism and cannot communicate verbally. The previous three times he went missing, he was found in the subway system, sometimes on the tracks, which has prompted the MTA to ask all subway workers to help search for him last week. The MTA also is making announcements on subways, asking riders to notify the NYPD if they seeing or know anything.

The NYPD says it put Avonte in the Operation Sentry Network, which Police Commissioner Ray Kelly says "consists of 140 law enforcement agencies in the northeast quadrant of the country." The police are also employing an "infrared camera that can detect body heat in the event the boy was hiding where he couldn't be seen," according to NBC New York. (Children with autism sometimes prefer to burrow.) Cops are also using loudspeakers with a message from Avonte's mother, asking him to come home.

Avonte's family has criticized a school security agent for not stopping him from fleeing the school. But Kelly defended her, "We have spoken to the school safety agent, who was on duty at the front door. We have looked at the videotape. She directs the young man to go back upstairs. She is at the front door. He goes down the hallway, actually exits the building from the side door. We see nothing at this juncture that shows that the conduct of the schools safety agent was inappropriate or there was any misconduct involved."

Avonte's older brother told WABC 7, "Even if she did say something to Avonte, you would probably have to do more than just say something. Should probably have contacted the parents and police immediately not later." And lawyer for the family said, "I don't want to cast stones without knowing, but the fact that he got away from that class and got downstairs means somebody was not looking and not watching, because otherwise, it wouldn't have happened."

There is a $70,000 reward for information leading to Avonte's safe return. Avonte 5'3" and about 125 pounds—and he cannot verbally communicate.
