Recording Of Mother’s Voice Used In Search For Missing Autistic New York Teen

Avonte Oquendo has been missing since October 4.

This year, the Rangers have a coach dedicated to running the power play, and that has been one of the reasons why the Blueshirts have been successful.Associate coach Scott Arniel is responsible for running drills in practice and drawing up strategies on the bench. Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News took notice of this, especially before the Rangers’ season opener against the Phoenix Coyotes . The Rangers spent almost all of Tuesdays practice on the power play. Ten minutes after they had finished, associate head coach Scott Arniel approacheddefenseman Marc Staalin the locker room. 11:15 on the ice, Arniel said. Power play. Tomorrow. As a result, the repetition has allowed players to gain chemistry, and the Blueshirts are currently clicking at 20 percent. The improvements on the power play have been so noticeable that there have even been situations where the power play has failed to score but looked good in the process. This year, players are moving the puck instead of standing around looking for the perfect shot. Brad Richards and Derek Stepan have been great on the power play, as the duo have recorded a total of six power-play points through six games. Richards has spent an average of3:40 a game on the power play, whileStepan has averaged 3:11. The two lead the team in power-play ice time, and the consistent playing time has really helped the two gain chemistry. A lot of the Rangers’ power-play success has come through the passing of Richards and Stepan, and that has allowed the team to cycle the puck around. The cycling has led to shots on goal, and four of them have entered the net thus far. Ryan Callahan has been another player that has really helped the Blueshirtspower play. In the past, he would set up in the slot, but Arniel has had the Rangers captain park himself in front of the goal crease.

Surveillance video then showed Avonte turning and going down another hallway, and exiting the building from a side door, he said. Surveillance video provided by the police department shows that no supervisor or monitor stopped the 14-year-old when he ran out. “He is supposed to have one-to-one supervision at all times,” Fontaine said through tears. “He has the mental capacity of a 7- or 8-year-old.” Growing up autistic Police said Avonte was last seen wearing a gray striped shirt, black jeans and black sneakers. He is 5 feet, 3 inches tall and weighs 125 pounds. Missing-persons posters are being handed out, and the search has expanded to areas outside New York City, Kelly said. The teenager is fascinated by trains, his family has said. Searches of train stations, tracks and tunnels are being conducted at the start of every shift by the Metropolitan Transit Authority, Kelly said, adding that 50 NYPD officers and a task force of detectives are working the case. Transportation officials in New York suspended overnight track maintenance on the city’s transit system this past weekend as workers combed the underground network. All 468 New York City subway stations have been searched, and aviation, harbor and canine officers are mobilized and deployed periodically, the NYPD said. “He doesn’t know that, you know, ‘I can get hurt in the street, someone can grab me and take me.’ He doesn’t know that,” Fontaine said. “He doesn’t know fear.” David Perecman, the Oquendo family’s attorney, said last week that he is looking into how Avonte was able to leave school grounds unsupervised. “Right now, we have submitted a Freedom of Information Act request to the city and the various agencies involved, in order to obtain the information for us to know what occurred,” he said. The New York City Department of Education issued a statement saying it is working closely with police. The school is not commenting.

New York restaurant serves up silent treatment

That’s the gamble a young restaurant owner is taking with patrons, who are prohibited from talking during four-course meals. The project, launched a month ago at Eat in Brooklyn’s fashionable Greenpoint neighborhood, has created a buzz in a city where restaurants are often so noisy that they trigger routine complaints. Customers have to reserve days in advance for the privilege of eating without speaking or hearing a word on Friday or Saturday night in the small room that seats 25. “I want to provide the opportunity for people to experience the food with a kind of intention and attention to the experience that isn’t usually afforded by a loud meal, especially in New York City,” manager Nicholas Nauman told AFP. Customers who dare break the golden rule during the $40 prix fixe meal are forced to finish their plate on a bench outside. Sitting at long, wooden tables adorned with stoneware, the clients play along while tasting a menu based on local organic ingredients. For an entire hour, they savor the food, watch one another and don’t say a word, as though cut off from the hustle and bustle of the outside world. Cell phones must also be turned off. Some struggle to keep serious in the face of an experience that is the polar opposite of the constant frenzy prevalent in New York, the city that never sleeps. Accolades from all around “We’re bringing our own intentionality to it as well,” explained the restaurant’s chef Elsa Schmitt, using a philosophical term for the mind’s power to stand in for things or concepts. “We know what is about to take place so we’re bringing our own energies to it.” As the dinner ends, after dessert, the silence ends.
