DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN - A special-needs teenager walked out of school last week and hasn't been seen since, according to family members.

The parents of 15-year-old Paris McCoy say he was last seen at the Science Skills Center High School in Downtown Brooklyn on April 29.

Family members are distributing fliers and canvassing the streets in hopes of finding the teen, who suffers from ADHD and behavioral disorders that require medication.

McCoy is supposed to have around-the-clock supervision, but when his parents arrived to pick him up from school last Thursday, they say he was nowhere to be found.

"My concern is that he's out there and easily manipulated, that someone is going to get him to do things that he's not doing normally," says his mother, Kathy McCoy.
