MISSING: Family desperately searches for brother who walked out of hospital nearly two weeks ago

Police in New York’s Hudson River valley are looking for a man who hasn’t been seen since he walked out of a Poughkeepsie hospital nearly two weeks ago.

Andrew Neiman was admitted to MidHudson Regional Hospital early in the morning on May 21 for mental issues, his sister, Emily Asher Abramson, posted on Facebook, and almost immediately regretted his decision. He begged his sister to get him out, but the hospital had “deemed him unfit for the community, meaning he couldn’t leave,” she said.

Hours later, he left the hospital.

Poughkeepsie police said Neiman is 5 feet 10 inches tall, 160 pounds, and is unshaven. He was last seen wearing blue/green hospital scrubs and socks, and police say he may have covered himself in a white blanket after he left. Abramson said Neiman isn’t from the area and is unfamiliar with locations in the Hudson valley.

Poughkeepsie police ask that anyone with information contact Detective Brad Cookinham at 845-485-3670, e-mail, or call the Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department main phone number 845-485-3666. Family has also set up a public Facebook page to aid in the search.
