Carolina Leid has the story.

Police on Long Island are asking for the public's help in finding a Brentwood teenager who was reported missing last month.

Each night Maria Arias leaves her Brentwood home, going from business to business, neighbor to neighbor, putting up flyers with family members hoping to find her only son.

Oscar Acosta, 19, walked out of his home on Thomas Street 11 days ago with no money, no bags, and his mother says no reason to run away.

Maria says she can't sleep wondering what happened to her son.

The high school senior told his cousin he was going to a nearby park in Brentwood to play soccer.

He hasn't been seen since.

And now Suffolk County Police suspect foul play.

Oscar, who also goes by Jossue, was last seen leaving his home on Thomas Street around 7 the night of April 29th.

He is Hispanic, 5'11 inches tall, and weighs 205 pounds.

He was wearing a white shirt, jeans, and black and white sneakers.

Arias told Eyewitness News in Spanish that it has been very hard thinking the worst while keeping her faith in God that her son while return home safely soon.

So if you have information that can help call detectives with the fourth squad, contact them at 631-854-8452 or simply call 911.
