Tip Leads Police to Boy, Lost for Week, In Hospital
Last Friday, a New York City police officer called Metropolitan Hospital Center in Manhattan to ask if anyone there knew about Francisco Gonzalez Barreto, a 16-year-old Mexican boy who had been missing for more than a week. ''I told them that his parents were worried sick,'' the officer said. ''Nope, no one here,'' the officer said he was told. Additional inquiries over the next several hours met with the same response.
