Missing Ulster camp teen found safe in New York City


DAIRYLAND – The 14-year-old Brooklyn boy who went missing from an Ulster County summer camp in Dairyland Tuesday night has been found apparently safe and sound some 100 miles away.

The boy, Moishe Dressner, was located at the Staten Island Mall. Staten Island Hatzolah Ambulance was called in to evaluate his condition.

He was located after he called his parents in Fallsburg. They notified the sheriff’s office and investigators traced the call to a phone booth at the mall. Sheriff’s investigators notified NYPD, which picked him up at the mall.

Authorities said Wednesday afternoon that they did not know why Dressner left the summer camp or why and how he ended up on Staten Island.

The youth’s disappearance from Spinka Camp sparked a massive search of the area by emergency responders led by Ulster Sheriff’s deputies and Catskills Hatzolah and involving State Police, a number of area volunteers totaling some 100 people.
