She said she was getting ready to go to a Broadway show on November 25 when Reynoso told her he was going to visit some friends. He was last seen leaving leaving the hotel at about 6 p.m. He was wearing black jeans, black shoes, a black pea coat and carrying a black bag. According to Renoyso's family, his cell phone either ran out of battery or was shut off the next day.

Reynoso's father, Angel Reynoso, said it is unlike his son to be unavailable. He also said that Reynoso was busy working on marketing a hangover cure he had developed.

Reynoso's girlfriend stayed in New York for three days and had her mother fly out to join her, the L.A. Times reports. However, she soon ran out of money and returned to Los Angeles. She gave Reynoso's family his luggage, and Angel Reynoso told the New York Daily News that that's the last they saw of her. "We don't know anything about her," he said.

Steven Reynoso is 5 foot 10 and 260 pounds. He was last seen wearing black jeans, black shoes and a black pea coat. He was carrying a black bag. Anyone with information should call the NYPD's Crime Stopper hotline at (800) 577-TIPS.
