NEW YORK, NY — Loved ones are searching for a Manhattan man who left for work just after 6 A.M. on November 28 and vanished.

"My mother told me she called him around 1:30 in the afternoon that Wednesday," said Freddie Ramos of his 30-year-old, 6’ 2” brother, Rhony Ramos. "It was off. We called him all day that day. It was off."

Rhony, who has a six-year-old son and seven-year-old daughter and suffers from schizophrenia, has never disappeared before, his concerned family noted.

"I wanna know he's not hungry; he's not cold; he's not somewhere stuck and he can't make it back home,” said Rhony’s sister, Elsa Franco.

A team has scoured the city, including Pelham Parkway, Fordham, Castle Hill, Grand Concourse, Yankee Stadium, and the A subway line Rhony would take every day to his job as a porter on New York’s Lower East Side.

"I mean lately he was a little down, but he still made his jokes," Franco said. "He always called his kids every single day and even that worries me.”

"He's a jokester. He's always up-spirit," added the missing man's cousin, Luis Marte. "Wherever he's at he's always speaking. He's happy. But lately his mood has changed and that's what worries us.”

Rhony was last seen at his home on 175th Street in Washington Heights, Manhattan, wearing a black coat. There have been several potential sightings of him shared on social media.

If you know Rhony Ramos' whereabouts, please contact Detective Cleary at (212) 927-3780 or the New York City Police Department at (212) 795-6110.
