NEW YORK (AP) - Police say they’ve arrested a man who set off a frantic search after losing track of his 3-year-old grandson on a Brooklyn subway.

They charged Wiley Reynolds on Saturday with failing to exercise control over a minor.

Police say the 49-year-old Reynolds fell asleep Friday afternoon while riding the northbound F train with his grandson, Kah-yon.

They say he panicked when he woke up in Queens and didn’t see the boy.

Police said another adult riding with Kah-yon returned the boy safely to his Newark, New Jersey home.

Reynolds’ report set off a desperate search. Helicopters with spotlights searched for Kah-yon near the Gowanus station where they were last seen boarding the train.

Reynolds’ family did not respond to a message. Information on his lawyer wasn’t immediately available.
