Family continues search for Willikies teen after tip leads police to another missing boy in Greenbay
With a reward being offered for information leading to the safe return home of Shamar Harrigan of Willikies, the Police and his family continue to receive reports of his sightings.
Reports are that while officers were on mobile patrol in the city and surrounding communities, they received what was believed to be information about the whereabouts of the missing 19-year-old.
Allegations are that law enforcers received a tip that he was being held in a residence in Greenbay.
However, upon responding to that intel, it was discovered that the teen boy found at the location was a 13-year-old Yorks villager who had been missing from his home.
Reports are that the child was taken to the station and handed over to his mother, who was unaware of his whereabouts.
The search for Harrigan continues and, through the assistance of Sir Robin Yearwood, a $5,000 reward is being offered for his safe return.
The young man has special needs and operates at the level of a seven-year-old.
He was last seen at home on November 14 and was wearing a black-and-white shirt and a pair of light-blue jeans pants and carrying a pink-and-blue knapsack.
While the family is stressed over the situation, they have not given up hope of finding young Harrigan.
