Reynoso took his girlfriend to the hotel in Times Square for a short vacation, the week before Thanksgiving, according to the New York Daily News, which first reported the story.
He left the hotel about 4 p.m. that Tuesday, telling his girlfriend that he was going to meet up friends, Reynoso's girlfriend told the newspaper.
Reynoso was trying to market a hangover cure he had invented at the time of his disappearance, his family told the newspaper, and his cellphone either died or was shut off about a day after he disappeared.
His family in LA declined to speak with a reporter from KNBC4.
Anyone with any information regarding Reynoso's whereabouts was asked to call the New York Police Department's Crime Stoppers hotline at (800) 577-TIPS.
