BROOKLYN - News 12 spoke with the woman who recognized a missing 11-year-old on the No. 4 train Monday morning and helped reunite him with his family.

Alana Joseph says she recognized Kareem Granton on the train after seeing a recent newscast on News 12 Brooklyn.

She says she snapped a picture of the boy and alerted the conductor, who held the train until she could find a police officer. Joseph found officer Dennis Grimm and his K-9, who took Granton off the train and began to ask him questions.

Grimm says Granton told him that he had been separated from his friend and he could not find his way back home. He had been missing since last Wednesday.

At a news conference, the boy thanked Joseph for finding him.
