Missing Stuy Town man’s family says he may have left the city

Andreas Robbins

Andreas Robbins

By Sabina Mollot

The family of Andreas Robbins, the Stuyvesant Town man who’s been missing since last Monday, believes he may have left the city, possibly for Washington, DC.

At least that’s what they are hoping, since when he last left his apartment on 14th Street, he was suicidal and had threatened to jump off the George Washington Bridge.

However, his girlfriend Alana Dakin said there’s so far been no evidence that he even went there, and the family’s since received a tip that he was seen at Union Station in DC.

Over the weekend Dakin posted a message on the website Reddit, which has since been removed, trying to get the word out in the DC area.

“He has been struggling with depression and has been talking constantly that he wants to leave NYC, so it is very possible that he changed his mind and ran. We had a small lead that he may have been spotted in DC, so I want to get his picture out in the DC area as quickly as possible,” she wrote.

Meanwhile, Elsa Stamatopoulou, Robbins’ mother, told Town & Village that the tip about him being in DC came from a stranger. As of Monday, however, she had doubts about that rumor’s accuracy.

“People are well-meaning and we follow each lead,” she said, but added, “it’s probably not (true).” Still, she said she thinks that “If he’s well and alive, he has left the city.”

Last week, police had to temporarily call off their search for Robbins, the New York Post reported. This was due to officers being reassigned to the protests over the court’s decision on the Eric Garner case. Robbins’ distraught father, Bruce Robbins, had told the Post then that his son was suicidal.

Stamatopoulou said that since then the NYPD has continued its search and she said she wasn’t angry about the reassignments last Thursday evening. “People sometimes politicize things,” she said. “It’s just a normal thing so I’m not looking to spin this.”

She added that she hopes if anyone does think they see her son to please contact the family or police and to give Robbins a message.

“Say to him, ‘Andreas, your family and friends all love you. Come back to us,’” she said. “If what he wants is to disappear for a time, the only thing we want is to know he is safe and let him pursue whatever he wants.”

At the time of his disappearance, Robbins had his wallet with him as well as his passport. However, Stamatopoulou said that may not have been deliberate since he always carried it with him.

Melissa Patel, Andreas’s best friend and a former resident of Stuyvesant Town, said she’s hoping Robbins has simply taken off somewhere, as he has done once in the past.

She recalled how four years ago when they were in college, he messaged her on Facebook to tell her he’d left home and had gone to Spain.

“He asked me to get his valuables from his apartment,” Patel said. “I’m hoping (this is) just his reckless kind of behavior. I’m hoping it’s that versus something else.”

Dakin added that while there were no recent changes or traumatic incidents she was aware of that may have set him off, she said Robbins had been looking for a break from the city.

“It’s hard when you’re 25 and trying to figure out what you’re going to do with your life,” she said. “He’d been talking about wanting to leave the city since he grew up here and wanting to try something new.”

Robbins, who’s 25 years old, is described as being white, 6 ft. 1 ins. tall and thin with dark hair and brown eyes. He has a prominent birthmark on the right side of his nose and tattoos on both shoulders and a tattoo in Greek on his right forearm.

Robbins’ parents can be reached at (917) 318-9707.
