THE BRONX - A Bronx man is on a mission to find his best friend and roommate who went missing five days ago.

According to Santiago Casanovas, Eric Cepeda never returned to their Longfellow Avenue apartment Saturday after he gave him money to go to a local deli. Casanovas has been handing out flyers and searching the streets ever since.

Casanovas says that Cepeda is both mentally and physically disabled, and is likely trying to get home, but can’t find his way back.

If you think you have seen Eric Cepada, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
