BROOKLYN - A missing autistic teenager from Brooklyn has been found safe.

Police say 14-year-old Eliceo Cortez disappeared Friday afternoon at the Q subway station in Sheepshead Bay.

Authorities say Cortez is in good health and has been reunited with his family.

Cortez's mother says that while the boy was away, he spent his time playing video games at Dave and Busters, visited parks and even made his way over to Times Square.

Cortez's mother added that if her son doesn't have a helper busing him to and from school in the future, she will not allow him to return to Leon Goldstein High School.
