THE BRONX - A Bronx family is frantically searching for their missing loved one.

The family of 29-year-old Kent Amoah-Kuma handed out fliers Sunday in hopes of finding him.

Amoah-Kuma has been missing since Thursday. He is on the autism spectrum.

He lives in Co-op City with his brother and his mother, Constance Amoah-Kuma, who says he hasn't left the house by himself in nine years.

When his mother returned home from Ghana on Friday, he was nowhere to be found.

Amoah-Kuma's family has been working with detectives to check security cameras near their apartment building.

They have been working with members of their church on Clinton Avenue to hand out fliers, hoping to find clues that will bring Kent home safely.
