The family of 20-year-old Isaiah Henriquez, who has been missing since Saturday, April 8, is asking the public for assistance. Police said he was last seen leaving a house party in Brentwood on Brentwood Road around 7:30 p.m. His family reported him missing the next day on April 9. Patch reported that he took a Lyft to the Poospatuck Indian Territory in Mastic according to close friends.

“He is thoughtful, loyal, loves kids and would do anything for his family,” said Henriquez’s aunt Ana Rodriguez. “He would never not come home without notifying his mother. Isaiah was a no-show for our family Easter dinner, which is also not like him.”

As of now, the West Babylon man has been missing for 18 days. Police describe Henriquez as a Hispanic male who is six foot and around 140 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes and a red tattoo with Arabic writing on the right side of his face. Henriquez also has a tattoo on his left forearm that says “Diana,” which is his mother’s name. He was last seen wearing black sweatpants and a black Nike jacket with silver grills in his mouth. Rodriguez also said Isaiah has posterior scars on his wrists from a recent accident.

According to police, searches have been conducted on foot by the canine unit and the aviation squad.

Henriquez’s mother, who asked to only go by her first name, echoed her sister’s sentiments describing her son as “loving” and “caring.”

“Isaiah is my best friend,” said Diana. “There’s nothing he wouldn’t do to protect me and keep me safe. He’s caring, loving. He would buy me flowers sometimes just for no reason.”

She last saw her son at home on April 8 around 5:30 p.m. getting ready for the Brentwood party that was taking place at an Airbnb. Diana left the house before Henriquez to head over to a cousin’s house and was unable to see who he left with for the party. According to Diana, ever since that Saturday night when calling Henriquez’s cell phone, it goes straight to voicemail and text messages have gone undelivered.

“I’m just trying to find my baby,” said Diana. “We feel incomplete without him. He always touches base with me. For him to not have called me throughout all this time is not like him at all.”

Suffolk County police asks that if anyone has any information in regards to Henriquez’s location to call First Squad detectives at 631-854-8152 or 911.
