NASSAU COUNTY, N.Y. — A missing Long Island teen has been found safe after an extensive 3-week search, police said.
Louis Germosen, 19, was located on Friday in the lower east side of Manhattan. He was last seen at his home in Westbury on June 28.
His family tells PIX11 that he didn’t know he was the subject of a massive investigation.
Germosen’s family previously said they feared MS-13 involvement.
“We’ve been hearing about some gang affiliations. That he might have been hanging out with the wrong people. We recently got a message that he might have had some people hanging out with some MS-13. I’m not 100 percent sure, we just got that tip last night,” the teen’s father said.
Germosen’s mother Marta Flores later said she does not think her son was directly involved in gangs, but perhaps knew members.
Investigators previously said they had no evidence to believe the teen’s disappearance involved any gangs.
