Sayed David Asghari, 25, was reported missing three days ago, after leaving his Fairfield Way home at 3:30 p.m., Suffolk police said.

"He left without taking his required medication including his antirejection medication," a Monday news release said.

Police said Asghari "may have taken the Long Island Railroad to New York City."

Police described Asghari as Middle Eastern, 5 feet, 9 inches tall, about 140 pounds, with a thin build. He has brown hair and green eyes and "a large abdominal scar from the liver transplant," police said.
