    Teenager disappears at Yankee game

    Teenager missing after disappearing from Yankee Stadium bathroom

    July 30, 2005, 1:31 PM EDT

    NEW YORK (AP) _ A 13-year-old boy from Stamford, Conn., was missing Saturday afternoon after he disappeared from a men's room Friday night on his first trip to Yankee Stadium, police said.

    Hundreds of police and security guards failed to find Majelique Lewis after he disappeared during a trip to the bathroom during the seventh-inning stretch of a Yankees-Angels game, police said.

    His mother immediately reported him missing to security, who notified police about an hour later, about 10:05 p.m. A search of the stadium, including parking lots, restricted areas and locked rooms, was fruitless, police said. Officers also searched nearby fast-food restaurants and train stations without results.

    The search ended around 5:40 a.m.

    Every stadium exit is monitored by security cameras and Lewis' mother did not spot him on hours of recorded images, police said. He attended the game with his 65-year-old mother, brother and and two sisters, police said.

    Lewis has no behavioral or mental problems and no history of running away, police said.

    "He's an average kid," said Arthur Shannonhouse, who answered the phone at Lewis' home and identified himself as the teenager's father.

    Between 10 and 15 children are reported missing at every Yankees game and are almost immediately located, police said.

    Teen Who Disappeared From Yankee Stadium Is Back With No Explanation
    August 01, 2005

    A teenager who disappeared from Yankee Stadium on Friday is back with his family in Connecticut but just why he disappeared is still a mystery.

    Majelique Lewis, 13, was found in Queens early Sunday morning.

    Police had been searching for Lewis since he disappeared during the seventh inning of Friday's game. He had been last been seen going to the men's room.

    Published reports say that that a group of older kids looked after Lewis over the weekend and even bought him dinner after he gave them a fake name and told them his mother had kicked him out of the house because of his clothes.

    At the time he disappeared Lewis was wearing jeans and a shirt made by Ecko, the hip-hop clothing manufacturer.

    Lewis spent part of one night sleeping on a park bench, after which one of his friends brought him to his grandmother's home. However Lewis took off when she told him she'd have to call the police to get him home.

    He was found by police officers late Saturday night outside her building.

    On Sunday, Lewis' sister-in-law stood outside the family's home in Stamford and thanked police, the media, neighbors, and friends for their support during the ordeal. However, she offered no clues as to why he ran away.

    With a first name like that you wonder why these kids have issues.

    Well, I'm glad they found him, and foul play wasn't involved.
