Richard Nocero has been found safe.
Richard Nocero, 59, was last seen in Astoria, New York at 151 Avenue on July, 13, 2020. It is believed he may have been heading to his mother’s house in Howard Beach.
Richard’s sister Gina posted: “Please help spread the word by sharing this post. My sweet brother Richard is a vulnerable, mentality challenged man who left my home in #Ditmars Astoria area sometime between 11pm-2:20 am on the night of Monday July 13th.”
“He does not know how to navigate the transit system and is most likely on foot. He has difficulty crossing streets so I don’t know how far he got from my home. He is very friendly and would most likely seek help, but as the hours pass I’m certain he’s terribly frightened, hungry, exhausted, thirsty and in need of a rest room. I doubt he is wearing his face mask.”
“He may have changed into his blue jeans and blue/gray polo shirt, but when I last saw him at bedtime he had on grey shorts and a white tank. He left with a black knapsack and grey sneakers and all his personal items, including his wallet, ID, Medicaid card and very little money. He is 5’11”, 220 lbs, has dark hair, brown eyes.He is described as 5’11” tall, 220 lbs, with dark hair and brown eyes. He was wearing blue jeans and gray sneakers when he disappeared.”
