William Tomas, 16, has been missing since around 1:08 a.m. Monday morning when he was seen walking out of the Hoboken University Medical Center, officials said.

The teen, who suffers from bi-polar disorder and substance abuse, has a history of running away and had been in the hospital since Sunday after he was found by the Guttenberg Police Department, authorities said.

The last time he was seen, Tomas was wearing a black jacket, white T-shirt, blue sweatpants and white sneakers. He does not have a cell phone and also does not use social media, police said.

Anyone with any information on the teen should contact the Hoboken Police Department at 201-420-2100, 201-420-2110 or 201-420-2109. An email can also be sent to lepree@hobokenpd.org.

Yesterday, Hoboken police located an elderly man suffering from Alzheimer’s disease within hours of asking the public for help locating him.
