An Indo-Canadian boy who went missing from Canada in October 2005 was tracked down in the US, media reports said.
Dipen Kumar Patel, 14, went missing from Brampton, in Greater Toronto Area (GTA), and was found in New Jersey Wednesday.
The Canadian police said Patel was living with a family member in the US. They also said the teenager was found in New Jersey's Neptune city in good health, according to the Toronto Sun newspaper.
Brampton's recent exponential growth in population is traced primarily to immigration. The city has a fast growing south Asian presence. Between 1996 and 2001, the south Asian population, including Punjabi Sikhs, grew from 34,000 to 63,000.
