THE BRONX - The family of a West Farms teen missing since Nov. 20 renewed calls to find him Monday.

SM Washington Imran Hossain immigrated to the United States just a few years ago, and his Bangladeshi family members say the language barrier has caused them trouble as they try to raise awareness about his disappearance.

The family says he had adjusted comfortably at John Adams High School in Queens, but became upset when he had to transfer to Frederick Douglas Academy in the Bronx.

The family says police told them they couldn't issue a report about Hossain going missing because he was older than 18.
