NEW YORK (AP/PIX11) — The parents of an autistic New York City teenager missing since October are holding on to a slim hope that human remains discovered on the banks of the East River belong to someone else.

But the family’s attorney David Perecmen conceded Saturday that “it’s not looking great” for the Oquendo’s family.

Perecmen spoke at the National Action Network alongside the Reverend Al Sharpton on Saturday saying the clothing found on the remains appears to match what Avonte was wearing when he vanished.
Sources tell PIX11 that a jaw and teeth were also found at the scene.The body parts were discovered Thursday in a secluded inlet.Police returned to the Queens waterfront Saturday to gather more evidence.Perecman said the family is waiting for DNA tests to determine whether the remains belong to the missing teen.



    To all parents and concerned citizens, please make yourselves aware of and investigate for yourselves and for the safety of your children: the CIA's "Finders" Abduction Operation.

    Me as a mother of six children im very heart broken, i can’t understand how a school not have the proper security for our kids, when our children go to school they r suppose to protect them for us for those eight hours,do u know whats that u send ur child to school n he dont come back. Then now a days u have so many tormented n sick people out there that dont belong in the streets. This is why i home school my babies for i can protect them n try to keep them from harm. Cause we cant even send them to school cause they dont even do theee jobs n protect ur child the way they use to whwn we were young teachers would actually care now they don’t they just go causeits a job no more care for the kids. They need to find out what happened to this poor baby who was innocent n an angel of god n a crazy fuck decided his destiny i hope n pray to god that the bastard harmed this baby gets what comes to him when hegets caught if there was an ass holethat hurt this baby may god punish u to the extreme.
