A Bronx family is pleading for help after their loved one was reported missing from the Bronx Psychiatric Center.
Police say Stanley Robinson, 37, was last seen leaving his home at the center on May 3 at 11 p.m. His family says it wasn't until days later that they found out he was missing after they saw his picture on News 12.
"The only way I knew about my nephew being missing was from you guys," said Cynthia Robinson, Stanley Robinson's Aunt, "We were not notified about anything, they will not tell me anytime of information because they say I am not his legal guardian."
Robinson says Stanley's mother died two years ago, and he has been living full-time at the Bronx Psychiatric Center on Waters Place for three years.
"I'm very concerned about him because he's mentally ill, and he is a type two diabetes, he has no medication, we don't know where he is," said Robinson.
According to the New York State Office of Mental Health's Policy for missing persons, when a person is considered missing, any contact person in their case record is notified. News 12 reached out to the Bronx Psychiatric Center and are awaiting a response.
Meanwhile Robinson is asking the public for help to find her nephew. She says he was last spotted near Saint Nicholas Avenue and 112th and 113th street in Harlem, near where he grew up. Robinson said he likes parks and maybe sitting in one nearby.
Anyone with information is asked to call police.
