Circumstances

Edward F Fritz resided in Farmingdale, New York. He was living with his mother and her second husband. He had graduated from high school in 1974, spending the last year being tutored at home due to his schizophrenia diagnosis. He attended college for only two months. But he never learned to job or held a job.

Edward spent most of his time at home reading or watching television. He couldn’t travel on his own and his mother usually took care of his transportation needs. He saw a psychiatrist once a month and attended ten sessions a week at a day program at Sunrise Psychiatric Clinic in the 30 block of John Street in Amityville, New York.

Fritz attended the day program the day he disappeared. And he was last seen was last seen inside the facility at approximately 12:30 p.m. on January 29, 2002. He had $1.25 per lunch and a quarter to use the pay phone for emergencies. He normally received a van ride back to his home at the end of the day.

At 3:45 P.M., the day program staff called his house and asked Fritz’s mother if he was home. She said he was not. And they said they’d lost track of her son approximately three hours earlier.

Officials initially believed that Fritz walked away from the facility and returned home. He maintained constant contact with his relatives prior to his disappearance. But after he went missing they never heard from him again. He was declared legally dead in June 2007.

Appeal

Edward F Fritz has been missing for over 16 years. Sadly, my multiple Internet searches have not brought up even one search result for him. I had to do a bit of digging for his NamUs profile. I cannot vouch for the accuracy of the details about the circumstances of his disappearance. This information is apparently no longer available. It is secondhand and you can judge this information for yourself. Fritz is one more person who falls on the wrong side of our deplorably unequal missing persons searches.

Even if, as claimed, Edward F FRitz was declared legally dead, his loved ones still need answers. Do you have any information concerning the whereabouts of Edward F Fritz? Do you have any information concerning the person (s) responsible for his disappearance? If you have any information, please contact the Nassau County Police Department at: (516) 573-7717. You may call 9-1-1 or your local police.
