NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - A 13-year-old boy from the Lindenwood section of Queens has been found safe after disappearing Friday morning when he went outside to take out the garbage.

The Queens Chronicle reported that Griffin Dreger, 13, was found at the Jamaica LIRR station.

The NYPD released a photo of the boy who is a student at St. Thomas the Apostle school in Woodhaven. His family was worried that he had been kidnapped because some neighbors said they thought they had heard him screaming outside his home on Cross Bay Boulevard.

The NYPD has been searching for another missing teen from Queens.

Avonte Oquendo, 14, of Rego Park disappeared last Friday after he ran out of his school in Long Island City.

Oquendo is autistic and unable to verbally communicate.

A $50,000 reward is offered for his safe return.
