It’s a happy ending for a nerve-wracked Ozone Park family.

A teenager reported missing a few weeks ago after last being seen turned up at his school upstate safe and in good condition, his father told the Queens Chronicle last Thursday.

Christopher Hill, 19, who lives at 88-16 102 Road, was reported missing on Feb. 22. He was last seen in front of a store located at 80-32 Jamaica Ave. in Woodhaven at 11:30 a.m. that day. Police released a missing persons report on him only a few hours after his family reported him missing.

Hill’s father, Mark, said his son was found at his school in upstate New York a few days later.

The young Hill, who has a form of autism, apparently had not made his family aware that he was going back.

“He got back there on his own,” the elder Hill said.

He said that his son was in good health when he was discovered and is doing well and his family is happy he is safe and sound.
