Kiryas Joel, NY - After a frantic search that lasted over twelve hours, Shimon Zorger, the 10 year old Williamsburg boy who vanished last night from Kiryas Joel, has been located.  Zorger had been in Kiryas Joel for the day to pay a visit to his grandparents who live on Lizensk Boulevard.

“We found him,” Moses Vitriol, director of the Kiryas Joel Public Safety Patrol, told VIN News.

It was New York State Trooper Danny Harter who found the missing autistic boy in the woods near the V’Yoel Moshe school, which backs onto Lizensk Boulevard.  Zorger, who is reportedly in good condition, was found at approximately 9:50 AM and was transported to Westchester Medical Center as a precautionary measure.

Vitriol commended the State Police for their efforts in the rescue mission and pointed to a history of cooperation between the state troopers and the Kiryas Joel Public Safety Patrol.

“The village has worked hand in hand with the state police for years,” said Vitriol.  “We always have meetings and drills together.  It shows that when you work hand in hand, it really does work.  Danny Harter has been working here for years and has been good to the community.  He knows the area and really puts his heart into everything he does.”

The boy’s parents told NBC 4 New York they recently ordered a tracking device for him to wear, but it hasn’t arrived yet. The family issued a statement saying, “We are grateful for the overwhelming outpouring of concern and support from our loved ones and all of our friends and neighbors as well as the rescue personnel involved in the search.”

If you read the last sentence of the article there would be no need of your comment.
The bigger concern is that the parents were not careful enough with the child.

B"H he was found safely. No matter how careful parents are, it only takes seconds for someone to go missing.

Even with a tracking device, the parents must still watch him for the rest of his life. They can't use the device as a babysitter and they must be educated about how to care for him. Tracking devices can and do come off. Then what?

Such a colossal lack of sensitivity for the Kletzkys (who DO frequent this site!) is unforgivable. I wish people would engage their brain before their typing fingers.

No need to jump.... If you read things correctly - you would notice that he posted that comment at 10:57 - whereas the article was only updated at 11:18 with the comment about parents ordering the tracking device.......

I'm sure the saintly Kletzkys would be the first to be overjoyed that this child was found in the woods safe.

I am astounded at the number of comments regarding training the parents, parent being irresponsible etc. I dare any of you to care for an autistic child for just one week. Try to remain alert 24/7. Make sure you can keep your doors locked from inside so he can not open them yet safe for fire egress. Try to discuss a device with a child that will remove any article of clothing with a label that touches him...
The VIN reader that wrote comment 20 needs to be educated, try volunteering or helping a family dealing with autism. They did not ask for it and probably did nothing to cause it. In short, get off your sanctimonious pedestal.

Your uncalled for back-handed "compliment" indicates that you obviously know NOTHING about this unique community, whose members would give you their white shirts (& maybe even a black vest or two) off their backs to assist YOU.
Pack away your guns* and perhaps join us for a Shabbos. You might be enlightened.
(*oy, vey! Did I just invoke a Texan stereotype?!!)

how dare you comment on the parents vigilance?!do you have any children on the autistic spectrum?well, i do.and let me tell you...no matter how careful i am with watching over her,things happen.
there have been times when my 4 year old child would run into the incoming traffic, and since i was pushing a baby carriage, it took me 2 seconds to push the brake and run after her..then there was the time i would keep my eye on her when another child demanded attention which meant that i looked away.and yes-i had this child get lost in a hotel once because she was like a loose cannon-all over the place.it was very scary and since then i do not go anywhere with her-may it be shopping malls,groceries,simchas, even chanuka parties are a big deal.so please do not ASSUME that it has anything to do with how the parents keep vigil.
