The Hoboken Police Department is seeking the public’s help to locate a man who suffers from manic bipolar disorder and has been missing since early on New Year’s Day.

Eamon Murphy, 30, was last seen around 1 a.m. yesterday and has since been reported missing by his family, who say he is in need of his medication, according to a missing person flyer.

Murphy has previously walked out of his home on a whim during manic episodes, which most recently occurred on November 26th, where he left Hoboken and ended up checking himself into the New York Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital around a day later.

He has brown hair, brown eyes, is around six feet two inches tall, and 180 pounds.

Anyone who has any information on his whereabouts is urged to call the Hoboken Police Department at 201-420-2100 or contact Police Det. John Quinones at quinones@hobokenpd.org.
