Police want help in search for mom, son

Boston police are asking for the public’s help in finding a young Roxbury mother and her toddler son who have been missing since mid-August.

Police said Maria Altagracia Reina-Delacruz, 20, who also goes by the name of Maria Serret-Tejeda, and her 1-year-old son, Royce Noe Reina-Serret, have not been seen since Aug. 17. They disappeared after leaving Roxbury for New York.

Attempts to contact Reina-Delacruz’s husband, who is the father of the child, have also been unsuccessful, police said. The husband, Noe Reina-Delacruz, “is considered a person of interest in the disappearance and is wanted on several unrelated matters,” police said.
