MANHATTAN, NEW YORK CITY: A doctor accused in a major healthcare fraud scheme had vanished earlier this month after his boat allegedly suffered an accident in the middle of the night.

Dr Moy’s friends expressed their frustration over the mysterious circumstances in which their friend has disappeared and are seeking answers. “We’ve got unresolved questions. We do not know what happened,” one friend said to the New York Post. “I would obviously like for my friend to be found. There’s still a chance he’s shipwrecked on some small rock. Everyone would just want answers,” his friend added.

Dr Moy was slapped with federal charges in January concerning a massive $100 million healthcare fraud scheme. As per the charges, he allegedly conducted "painful electro-diagnostic testing" on patients that didn’t need the procedure, while Moy pleaded not guilty. He was scheduled to appear in court one week before disappearing on the night of October 12, reports RadarOnline.

On the court hearing that took place on October 19, Moy’s lawyer informed Judge Paul Gardephe that his client is not to be considered officially dead as the investigation into the disappearance is not completed, as per the Coast Guard. Moy's lawyer claimed, “The representative indicated that he would keep us apprised of any developments and that, ultimately, a report would be issued and that we would be provided such a report.”

It was further confirmed by Nicholas Biase, a spokesperson for the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, that the investigation is still in process and they will have to wait until an official report is filed on Moy’s mysterious disappearance.
