Yesterday, the NYPD sent out a frantic alert: a three-year-old boy, last seen on an F train in Brooklyn near the Smith and 9th Street Station, was missing after his grandfather fell asleep and woke up in Queens. Luckily, the police later updated the media by saying the boy, Kah-yon Reynolds, was found in Newark in good health. It turns out that the boy and grandfather had been with the grandfather's friend, who took the boy home.
According to WCBS 2, "Police sources [say] that the grandfather, who they said takes methadone, usually picks up the boy at his Newark home to take him for a walk. But this time, the grandfather took the boy to Brooklyn with someone police called a “methadone clinic” friend, and the grandfather fell asleep on the subway, police said. Kah-yon spent the day with the grandfather’s friend and returned to Newark, police said."
The grandfather apparently woke up at 3 p.m. and reported Kah-yon missing at 7:45 p.m. The NYPD contacted the methadone clinic and found out the grandfather had been there with a friend. NY1 says, "Sources say the friend didn't feel that the boy should have been in his grandfather's care."
WABC 7 reports, "The grandfather is likely to face some charges, but police are still investigating. "
