Hedge funder-turned-homeless man found safe after going missing

The former hedge-fund millionaire who ended up a missing homeless person has been located safely, police said Monday.

Paul Greenwald, 70, turned up to Bellevue Hospital on Monday, more than a day after he went missing there, authorities said.

Greenwald, who a decade ago lived in the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel as a wealthy hedge funder, had been reported missing after leaving the hospital at about 2 a.m. Saturday, police said.

Greenwald descended into homelessness after getting into legal trouble with his estranged wife, NYU professor and cookbook author Michelle Greenwald.

He allegedly attacked her outside her Meatpacking District home in 2009, according to Post reports from the time.

Greenwald was committed to Bellevue Hospital’s jail ward after the alleged attack, The Post reported.

And at a subsequent court hearing, Greenwald — who was charged with seven counts of felony criminal contempt — was dismissed for shouting at the judge. “The judge is a f—ing crook!” he yelled.
