Missing Teen Found On West Side


After a three-day search that consumed the West Side Jewish community, police on Tuesday night located a missing teen who "stormed out" of the of the local JCC on Sunday evening.

Following up on a tip from a student who saw his picture posted at Stuyvesant High School, auxiliary officers found Zachary Manning, 15, a sophomore at Brooklyn Friends School, in Bryant Square Park in Midtown with a friend.

He had been staying with friends in Queens after an argument with his mother.

His father, Larry, said his son was in the JCC of the Upper West Side for only about 15 minutes before he "stormed out" without a word to anyone.

He said that before leaving, his son and his wife talked in the lobby about "a couple of issues he was having." On Wednesday, Zachary’s mother, Phyllis, said "we have a second chance. We have to start working things through."
