The family of a missing Roxborough student said Tuesday that a reward for information about his disappearance has been increased to $65,000.

Shane Montgomery, 21, has been missing since Thanksgiving Day, when he disappeared in the early hours of the morning after partying with friends in Manayunk. He was last seen at a Kildare's Irish Pub, and investigators - including an FBI task force - have been searching for any trace of him since.

The additional $15,000 added to the reward comes from private donations and a fund-raiser held at Chubby's Steaks on Henry Avenue on Monday, said Montgomery's uncle, Kevin Verbrugghe.

Authorities ask that anyone with any information on the disappearance call the police department's tipline at 215-686-TIPS, or the FBI at 215-418-4000.
