Sag Harbor Man Goes Missing in Manhattan

Family of 26-year-old Victor Weiss say he was last seen at Penn Station on Wednesday.

The family of a Sag Harbor man is asking the public's help in locating him.

Victor Weiss, 26, was last seen in Penn Station in New York City on Wednesday morning, according to his mother, Meikle Blossom.

His brother Wil Weiss posted an alert on Facebook along with a picture and description. "He's really tall (6'6") and lanky (165 lbs). If you see him please contact the police immediately, so he can get the help he needs!" he wrote. "PLEASE SHARE THIS PHOTO! Help bring my bro home."

Within 40 minutes, the post was shared nearly 90 times.

"We're thinking positive thoughts," Blossom said, adding that she wants to respect her son's privacy.

The family filed a missing person report with Sag Harbor Village police, as is the protocol, and they are in touch with the New York City Police Department to try and locate him, and reach out to all hospitals, in case he went there.

Victor Weiss took an early morning Hampton Jitney to Manhattan, Blossom said. His cellphone was found at Penn Station. "He may have just lost it," she said, adding that no one has heard from him since about 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

If you see Victor Weiss in New York City, contact the NYPD, and if you see him on the South Fork, please contact local authorities.

Terrible. Let's pray for his return... remember it's the astrological 'mercury retrograde' which rules missing objects + people; it will last 3 weeks now, expect delays + confusion.

oops! Just read he's found... see, the retrograde mercury causes mix-ups!

Maybe he thought that phones could be geolocated so he left it behind. He is definitely on a journey.
