Do neighbors know more about the missing teenager?
A Facebook post by a concerned resident out in Bloomfield County (about 3 hours west of Albany) alerted neighbors of a missing child, encouraging them to look everywhere including their own backyard where he may be hiding out.
Holly Van Sile Lovejoy, a resident of Bloomfield County, alleges that Abrams was at a basketball game on Wednesday evening when he became "angry" and "ran away".
"Bloomfield residents please check your yards/garage sheds this boy was angry and ran from the basketball game last night at about 7:30 !! Mike and I helped search last night with no luck! I am sure he is cold and scared and no matter what the reason he ran he is a child who needs help!!" -Facebook
