JORDAN PALMER

A favorite son of the St. Louis Jewish community, Andy Cohen, is using his fame and social media power to help find a missing man from St. Louis, and thus the search has attracted national attention.

On May 27th, Cohen made a Facebook post showing a flyer of Andrew “Andy” Neiman. The flyer alerted the public that Neiman, who is from St. Louis and attended Clayton High School, walked away from the MidHudson Regional Hospital in Poughkeepsie, New York last month and has not been seen since.

Last Friday, Cohen told the TODAY SHOW, “Andy is younger than me, but we went to the same camp — Nebagamon in Wisconsin — and the same high school. I’m praying for his safe return, along with a lot of folks in St. Louis.”

Meanwhile, Neiman’s family and friends have made additional social posts with additional information.

Hello my cherished Friends, who are surrounding me/us with love, hope and prayers. This is day #18 without my son, Andy, and with no clues as to his whereabouts. We are casting an ever widening net with National Media attention. Please alert any of your family or friends in the Hudson Valley and NY state. Also possible that he found a way to move into NJ/MA or CT. If you think you have spotted him, knowing that he will look like a Homeless person, with medium length hair and beard, please take a picture with your phone and text it to 845.687.3066 or call NY State Missing Persons Hotline: 800.346.3543. Thank you from the bottom of my broken heart. (Lainie Collinger Neiman)

 

The poster says Neiman has schizophrenia and is 5-foot-10 and weighs about 165 pounds. He was last seen wearing green hospital scrubs and glasses.

Those with information about Neiman’s whereabouts are asked to contact Poughkeepsie police, or to call a hotline at 845-687-3066.
