Posted: Updated:

The father of a 5-year-old autistic boy who wandered out of P.S. 73 by himself last week says he?s looking to have his son transferred because of the incident.

Officials say they are still investigating the incident, but Jerry Camacho wants to know what the hold-up is.

"It's been a week already," says Camacho. "They should know how my son was able to get out the school and get to where he got to... I feel that there's just a lot of bureaucracy and politics."
