NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A Queens family is getting frantic as the search for a diabetic teenager drags on.

As WCBS 880’s Alex Silverman reported, Aidan Norvez, 18, of Middle Village, took an exam at Brooklyn Tech on Thursday and then spent the afternoon in Central Park with a friend.

He then got on the subway. He was last reported seen at the West Fourth Street station.

“He’s been very stressed out about school and decided he wanted something to do,” his aunt and godmother, Moira Sapia, told Silverman.

Sapia said Norvez was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes about a year ago, and that added to his anxiety. The teen didn’t have his insulin or cellphone with him, Sapia said.

“I just can’t imagine him being out there,” she said. “I just want him to come home.”

Sapia said Norvez has been thinking about becoming a priest and regularly buys food for homeless people.

Norvez was last seen wearing a black sweatshirt and blue jeans. He is 5 feet, 11 inches tall and weighs around 130 pounds.

Police have released a photo of the teen. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS or submit a tip online
