Andy Cohen asks for help finding his missing childhood friend
Andy Cohen calls for the safe return of a former classmate who has been missing for nearly two weeks.
Bravo star and Sirius XM radio host asked for help on his Facebook page following the disappearance on May 21 of actor and playwright Andy Neiman.
The two men attended Clayton High School in St. Louis, Missouri, a native of Cohen.
Cohen, 53, told Page Six: “Andy is younger than me, but we went to the same camp – Nebagamon in Wisconsin – and the same high school. I pray for his safe return with many people in St Louis.
Neiman, 48, who suffers from bipolar disorder, has not been seen since being discharged from MidHudson Regional Hospital in Poughkeepsie, wearing only green scrubs and socks. The 5’10 “dad wasn’t carrying cash or a cell phone at the time.
Her younger sister, Emily Abramson, told Page Six her brother experienced a psychotic crisis while staying with his family in High Falls, County Ulster.
Abramson described Neiman, a graduate of Wesleyan College in Middletown, Connecticut, as a “wonderful, witty guy” with special love for his nine-year-old daughter.
“He’s incredibly eccentric with deep passions for a variety of things, especially the performing arts and Shakespeare,” she added. “His mind is very analytical.”
She added: “One of her talents is to transmute her understanding of Shakespeare to people of all ages.”
His distraught family is now hoping that Cohen’s appeal will revive the search for Neiman, partially funded by a Go Fund Me campaign which has so far raised $ 38,600.
“Unfortunately, leads to date have not materialized to locate Andy,” one section of the page read. “Although we are disappointed, we are not discouraged. “
Donors to the fund included professionals from the New York City acting scene, such as Stark Sands, twice nominated for Tony.
Any information on the whereabouts of Neiman must be reported to the hotline 845 687 3066.
