Have You Seen This Arverne Teen?
On Monday evening, December 4, Derek Hardy, Jr. and his father had a spat and the 15-year-old teen ran out of their Beach 71 Street apartment without a coat or shoes. He has not been seen since. Hardy, who goes by the street name of "Nuka," was wearing only a white t-shirt and blue jeans when he left. He is described by his parents at 5' 11" tall, about 185 pounds, with braids in his hair. He was last seen, his parents said, in the area of the Redfern Houses in Far Rockaway. Anybody who sees Hardy should contact the 100 Precinct detective squad at (718) 318-4211 or his parents at either (718) 578-0399 or (718) 316-3208.
