NEW YORK (PIX11) — Police are searching for a 10-year-old boy who disappeared after school Friday afternoon.
Reginald Matthews was last seen on inside of P.S. 217 on Roosevelt Island. He did not show up for an after-school program, and when he didn’t return home, his foster mother called police.
“I pray to God that they find him,” an emotional Marcia Cole said.

The child nicknamed, “Reggie” has been living with his foster family for the past three months in a building just a block from the school.

Police are looking for his biological mother who was allowed supervised visits.

Reggie is described as approximately 5’1’, 150 lbs., with brown eyes, black hair in cornrows, and a mole behind his right ear.
