OCEAN BREEZE — A man who went missing from a Staten Island psych center earlier this year was reported absent again over the weekend, police said.
Celso Torres, 44, was last seen at his residence in South Beach Psychiatric Center, 777 Seaview Ave., at 8 p.m. on Sunday, police said.
He was last seen wearing a blue shirt with stripes and white sneakers. Police described him as 5-foot-9 and weighing 150 pounds.
The most recent disappearance is the fourth to be reported from the center this year. The most recent was Vadim Babyrev, 44, who was admitted to the center after he tried to kill his mother with an iron. He didn't return to the center after getting a day pass.
A spokesman for the state's Office of Mental Health previously said that several other groups have residency programs on the site and the missing people aren't always from the psych center.
Anyone with information in regards to this missing is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
