A Brooklyn teenager who went missing after Yom Kippur has been found alive and in good health. New York police reported that 17-year-old Tzvi Stolzenberg was in good condition when he was located. They did not reveal the teen's whereabouts, nor details about the circumstances in which he was picked up.

Stolzenberg went missing a week ago in a Brooklyn neighborhood last Wednesday night at the end of the Jewish Day of Atonement, the holiest day in the Jewish calendar.


City Councilman David Greenfield and State Assemblywoman Helene Weinstein teamed with Flatbush Shomrim – the community civil patrol – to post a $3,000 reward for information on the missing teen.

Police were assisted in their search by Shomrim volunteers, who function as Jewish patrols in Hassidic and hareidi-religious neighborhoods.
