DETROIT (WWJ) -- A Detroit family is pleading for answers, as a cash reward is offered for information in the case of a young man now missing for several months.

According to Crime Stoppers of Michigan, 21-year-old Arnett Lenyoun Jr. — known by the nickname “Lazy" — disappeared under "suspicious circumstances" on Tuesday, April 25, 2023, on Detroit's east side.

Police said Lenyoun left his home in the 4600 block of E. Nevada at around noon that day, and did not return.

Lenyoun is described as a Black male, 5'7'' tall and weighing around 135 lbs., with black hair and brown eyes. He has a tattoo of a rose on his hand, and "Anyia" on his wrist, and was last seen wearing a red hoodie and black pants.

Reaching out on social media, family members say they haven't heard from Lenyoun since he went missing. Months later, they say no one is speaking up about what happened to him, and there are no leads as to his whereabouts.

Crime Stoppers announced Monday it is offering a cash reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to Lenyoun's location, with his mother and other loved ones scheduled to speak at a news conference on Tuesday.

Anyone who may have seen this missing person, or who has any information about his whereabouts is asked to make a 100% anonymous call to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-Speak Up (800-773-2587). The public can also submit anonymous tips online at this link.

To speak to Detroit Police Department detectives directly, call the 10th Precinct at 313-596-1101.
