BRENTWOOD - A Brentwood family wants a missing teen to return home and says he may have been lured away by an older woman.

Family members believe Christopher Reyes, 15, was lured away by Sujay Romero, his 30-year-old girlfriend.

Candy Reyes, the teen’s great grandmother, says he ran away from the Outreach Center drug treatment facility where he was staying after being suspended from school for marijuana possession.

Reyes’ family believes Romero lured him to live with her and her three daughters in Allentown, Pa. Chelida Acosta, Reyes’ grandmother, says a Facebook posting indicated that he was with Romero.

According to Acosta, Reyes has not contacted his family since disappearing five months ago. She also says she and police have called Romero, who denies Reyes is with her.
