CVP EXCLUSIVE: A 10-year-old autistic boy from New Milford was reunited with his grandmother this afternoon after he slipped away from her in River Edge and boarded an NJ Transit train that was later stopped in Montvale.

New Milford rookie Police Officer Samuel Gerais — out with his field training officer, Derek Mattessich — found a woman who’d just gotten off  train at the River Edge station who saw the Berkeley Street boy get on, Capt. John Kiene told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

They relayed the information to officers at headquarters who alerted NJ Transit police to stop the train, he said.

An alert also was broadcast to surrounding towns, the captain said.
