BROOKLYN - A family is demanding answers after a 5-year-old student with ADHD wandered away from school during dismissal on Monday.

Police say 5-year-old Kenei was missing from P.S. 306 during dismissal, sending his mother Ronee Tye into a worried frenzy. A good Samaritan found Kenei a few blocks from the school, but Tye is demanding answers.

Tye says there is no excuse for this kind of worry, especially after the tragic outcome of the Avonte Oquendo case. She also says that Kenei has a one-on-one school aide that should have been watching him.

Tye says she intends to sue the Department of Education for negligence. A DOE representative says the incident is being looked into.
