Andy Cohen Begs For Help In Search For Missing Childhood Friend Who Disappeared 2 Weeks Ago

UPDATE 06/19/21 4:25 P.M. PST: Andy Neiman, who was a childhood friend of Andy Cohen, has reportedly been found dead. Stephanie Saur confirmed the tragic news on the GoFundMe she created to help find the 48-year-old after he suddenly disappeared nearly a month ago. She wrote on the fundraiser page:

“We are utterly heartbroken to share that Andy’s body has been found in Poughkeepsie. THANK YOU to all who have given so much to help with the search. The funds previously donated will cover funeral costs and we’re increasing our goal to raise additional funds to support Andy’s 8-year-old daughter. Thanks to all who have contributed to this effort.”

His sister Emily Abramson revealed he had been found on the Hudson River shoreline in Poughkeepsie on Wednesday. She said in a public Facebook group created to help in his search:

“Yesterday it was confirmed that the body found on the Hudson River shoreline in Poughkeepsie on Wednesday was indeed him. As before, when we were on the hunt to bring him home, your words of love and prayer, and encouragement bring me great comfort at this time. Do not be afraid of saying the wrong thing. Thank you for being the web that I can fall into.”

Our hearts go out to Neiman’s family and friends during this difficult time.


Andy Cohen is determined to find an old friend who has been missing for almost two weeks.

The 53-year-old Bravo host recently shared a missing person poster on his Facebook seeking the whereabouts of childhood pal Andy Neiman, who went missing on May 21. He told E! News on Thursday about his buddy:

“Andy is younger than me, but we went to the same camp — Nebagamon in Wisconsin — and the same high school. I’m praying for his safe return, along with a lot of folks in St Louis.”

Neiman’s sister, Emily Abramson, also spoke with Page Six, saying her brother experienced a psychotic break while staying with her family. She further described him as a “wonderful, spiritual guy” who has so much love for his 9-year-old daughter. Abramson then added:

“He is incredibly quirky with deep passions for a variety of things, especially the performing arts and Shakespeare. His mind is greatly analytical. One of his talents is transmuting his understanding of Shakespeare to people of every age.”

Neiman, who is an actor and playwright, was last seen leaving the MidHudson Regional Hospital in Poughkeepsie, New York, late on Friday, May 21. According to authorities, he was wearing a “blue/green scrub skirt and scrub pants, no shoes, and socks.” The father also did not carry any money or a cellphone at the time of his disappearance.

A GoFundMe created by the friends and family of Neiman also mentioned he “has a history of mental illness and may be suffering from psychosis.” Based on an update from the fundraiser, a private investigator has been hired to help with the search, but the dad has yet to be found:

“Unfortunately, leads to date have not materialized locating Andy. While we are disappointed, we remain undeterred. We have increased our GoFundMe goal in this critical time to find Andy and are redoubling efforts to hire additional private investigators, fly drones, advertise, pound the pavement, and search the woods, parks, and waters where Andy maybe.”

The family has raised exactly $40,000 to help cover the costs of their search, and they hope Cohen’s plea will bring their reunion one step closer.

Oof, we are certainly hoping for Neiman’s safe return home soon! We can’t even imagine how worried the family must be. If you have information about his disappearance, you can call the New York Missing Persons Clearinghouse at 1-800-346-3543 or the Poughkeepsie Police Department.
