    It looks like they found some of his belongings near/on a bridge:

    Police began searching for any sign of the Brooklyn man the same day he vanished, prompting investigators to make a startling discovery — while canvassing the Manhattan Bridge Wednesday night, cops found Amofah’s New York State driver’s license, along with several other cards and his wallet.

    They also found his cell phone, a black and red Nintendo Switch and a laptop bag believed to belong to Amofah, which contained a pair of boxers, a shirt, shorts and headphones, police sources said.

    This is a most disturbing announcement. How tragic this would be. Hopefully this isn't the case.

    If you go to Youtube and type "Etika I m sorry" there's his last video done shortly before he ended his life. This is really sad:(.

    I saw the video that he recorded when the police forced entry into his apartment because he had expressed suicidal thoughts. This was last fall I think. it's sad that he was never able to accept the help that was offered him.
