Search for missing boy

More than 100 police officers – as well as a helicopter overhead – searched in the areas around 165th Avenue and 83rd Street for a missing seven-year-old Brooklyn boy – and found bones, according to a police source, though it was unclear if they were human or animal.
Patrick Alford vanished from his foster family’s East New York home on January 22. According to reports, detectives, who first eyed the boy’s birth mother in the disappearance, now believe she wasn’t responsible.
