I had posted this on this blog’s Facebook page earlier today but I just received what I am posting now from a reporter I know who was forwarded information by an FBI Public Affairs Specialist out of Philadelphia. Since this kid has not been located that I know of, I thought I would do a proper blog post with the information I was given.
IMPORTANT Note: West Whiteland Police are leading the investigation, with the FBI supporting; please direct all media inquiries/tips to WWTPD at 610-692-5100.
This whole missing special needs person strikes a chord with me. There are special needs facilities and group homes throughout Chester County. Many of us have one of these places in our neighborhoods. Sometimes I think the neighbors of these facilities care more about keeping an eye peeled for their special needs neighbors than the staff paid to do so 24/7. I hope this boy gets home safely, his parents must be frantic. He is only 14 years old. 14 can be such an emotional time for boys who aren’t special needs. Please call West Whiteland Police if you have seen him.
