12-Year Old Boy Missing In Catskills 

A search is on for a 12-year-old boy who went missing in the Monticello area.

Benyamin Simantov-Linkov was last seen at 1 p.m. Oct 22 leaving his residence at 30 Landfield Ave. after an argument with a family member.

Simantov-Linkov, originally from Brooklyn, was last seen wearing a white dress shirt, black pants and black shoes.

There are two command posts set up in order to look for the boy. One is at the Monticello Police Department located at 2 Pleasant St., Monticello and another at the Jewish Hebrew Day School located at 4718 State Route 42, Kiamesha Lake.

Village of Monticello police said there are currently 50 to 60 people looking for the boy, including those going door to door and searching the woods in the area.

Principal of the Jewish Hebrew Day School Rabbi Menachem Fruchter said that searchers at his command post will not be looking in the woods but will be checking public areas and continue going door to door to search for the boy.

Searchers are expanding their search to Fallsburg and Liberty and sending crews to the local Shoprite grocery stores with photos of Simantov-Linkov. Emergency response teams from Brooklyn, the Village of Kiryas Joel Fire Department, state and local police are looking for the boy.
