Details of Disappearance

Reyes was last seen at the Harlem Valley Psychiatric Center in Dover, New York at approximately 7:00 p.m. on November 10, 1989. He was being treated at that facility on a voluntary basis for his mental disability. When a staff member went to his room to get him for dinner, he was gone. The last time anyone had seen him was two hours before.

Reyes had a tendency to wander throughout the facility, and sometimes left the grounds altogether. Ten days before he went missing, he'd been found wandering disoriented in a nearby parking lot, wearing two other patients' clothes. It's worth noting that the Harlem Valley Psychiatric Center was close to a train station and about an hour's walk from the Connecticut border.

Little information is available as to Reyes's fate. The Harlem Valley Psychiatric Center closed in 1994.
