On Thursday, May 15, 18-year old Aidan Norvez had just finished an AP Econ exam, one of the last tests of his high school career, and he headed to Central Park with his friends to celebrate. But Norvez, who is scheduled to graduate one month from now, never came home from the park.
The teenager is a type 1, insulin-dependent diabetic, and his family believes he was not wearing his medic alert bracelet on Thursday. He did not have his phone with him either.
Since then, Norvez’s family and friends have mounted social media campaigns on Facebook, where classmates and friends are organizing a massive multi-borough search scheduled for Monday afternoon; on Tumblr, where Norvez’s friends and family are appealing for help, and on Reddit, where one user may have spotted Norvez getting off of the train at 34th Street-Penn Station on Thursday.
Asked if he had any theories on his son’s disappearance, Claude Norvez told NY1, “I don’t know. He’s got a lot of a stresses in his life right now, with college and considering going to the seminary. I really don’t know. I honestly don’t know. I’m hoping for the best.”
Norvez is 5 foot, 11 inches tall and weighs 130 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen around 4 p.m. on Thursday afternoon at W. 4th Street station. He wearing a Doctor Who t-shirt, jeans and a black sweatshirt at the time.
