Armand Koskas, 74, a retired chemical engineer now suffering from Alzheimer’s, has gone missing, and friends and family at the Manhattan Sepharadic Congregation fear for his life.

Koskas was last seen on Wednesday morning on Madison and 94th Street, in Manhattan, and has been missing for nearly 30 hours. He lives on 77th Street, in Manhattan. He is 5’5″ and was wearing a navy blue jacket.

Manhattan Sepharadic Congregation’s Rabbi Raphael Benchimol urged synagogue members to be on the lookout for Koskas.

“We’ve called the hospitals, the shelters, the police, and the Shomrim and Hatzlaha [Jewish ambulance service] but no one knows anything. We are very worried about Armand, something terrible could happen to him,”  Rabbi Benchimol said.

Contact the Shomrim hotline on 718-237-0202 with any leads on Koskas. For more information, click here for the Shomrim missing person’s report.
