Missing Boy Wanders NYC Alone, Has the "Greatest Day" of His Life

Most kids would freak out if they were separated from their parents in a busy city like New York—but not Chris Villavicencio.

The 9-year-old, who was reported missing on Saturday, told the Daily News it was "the greatest day" of his young life.

Chris was at the Central Park Zoo with his sister, mom, and dad when he became lost and wandered the city for two hours, trying to retrace his steps. The boy meandered through Times Square and eventually ended up at the Port Authority Bus Terminal, where police officers found him and gave him yogurt.

"This was the greatest day of my life, because this was the first day I was at the police station!" Chris, of Union City, N.J., told the Daily News.

The family was reunited at the bus terminal.
