PROSPECT PARK SOUTH – A 13-year-old boy, Ade Prince, was on his way home from school earlier this month. He never made it home.
The last his parents ever saw him was on November 4 as he was leaving for school. He attends Exceed Upper Charter School and is in the eighth grade. He was wearing a black jacket, grey pants, black sneakers, and glasses with a black and orange frame.
According to Pix 11 News, Prince notified the dean of the school that his mother won’t be picking him up that day as she was sick. That was true and Prince was supposed to take the bus home.
On Friday, November 7, Prince was spotted on the Coney Island-bound Q train by his mother’s friend. He was with two of his friends and was wearing a navy blue sweatshirt, the Daily News reported.
About eight months ago, Prince stayed out late and didn’t come home for two days. When he did, he said he was staying with a friend a block from his home, Pix 11 reported. But, it has now been a week and Prince is still not home.
