SOMERVILLE, N.J. — A $2,500 reward was posted Tuesday in the case of an 8-year-old boy taken allegedly by his parents from his grandmother’s home in New Jersey, authorities said.

Michael Streko, 34, and Amy Streko, 32, are wanted in the disappearance of their son, Everett Streko, the Somerset county Prosecutor said. They are in violation of a court order and are wanted on suspicion of child interference, according to prosecutors.

Everett Streko was last seen about 10:30 p.m. July 16 by his grandmother and legal guardian at her home in Greek Brook, N.J., officials said. But when the grandmother woke up the next day, the child and Amy Streko – his biological mother who was also living in the home – were gone and so were all his belongings.

Neighbors said they last saw Everett’s father at 1 a.m. July 17 moving out of his home on West Sylvania Avenue in Neptune City, N.J., prosecutors said. He’s known to drive a 1997 white and blue Winnebago with NJ plates X72-FNK.

The missing child Everett Streko is described as 4 feet tall, about 60 pounds with green eyes, brown hair and fair skin.

His mother may be driving a 2007 grey four-door Ford Focus with NJ places Y96-FHN.

A $2,500 reward is being offered for tips that lead to the arrests of the boy’s parents.

Anyone with information in the case is urged to call the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Major Crime Unit at 908-231-7100, Green Brook Police Department at 732-968-1188 or the Somerset County Crime Stoppers’ Tip Line at 1-888-577-TIPS (8477).
