Family seeks public's help finding missing Hudson Valley man
The family of a missing man from the Hudson Valley is asking for the public's help to bring him home.
Andy Neiman left the MidHudson Regional Hospital on Friday when he wasn't supposed to.
Emily Abramson and her family say they have been working around the clock to find her brother since he disappeared the day after he came to visit them last week.
The 5-foot, 10-inch tall, 165-pound father in his mid-40s walked out of the Poughkeepsie hospital alone Friday night after going there earlier on in the day to get help with a mental health issue.
In a statement, WMC Health would not comment on the specific case, but added in part, "Our protocol immediately following patient elopement is to contact local authorities and collaborate with them on their investigation. We regularly review, evaluate and refine our policies and practices to ensure we meet patient expectations and standard of care required from a clinical quality, safety, patient experience and privacy perspective."
