The search for a West Chester University student missing since Thanksgiving continued Tuesday into a sixth day with no new developments.
Shane Montgomery, 21, was last seen at a Kildare's Irish Pub on Main Street in Manayunk in the wee hours of the morning Thanksgiving Day. He had been out with friends, police said, and left around 1:50 a.m.
Over the past six days, police and the FBI have searched the Roman Catholic High School graduate's college dormitory and his room at his Roxborough home, combed the Manayunk Canal and the Schuylkill, and searched from the air in a police helicopter.
A reward for information in the disappearance has increased to $31,000 on Tuesday, with $5,000 of that coming from the owners of two suburban bars. Kildare's has pitched in $10,000. Anyone with any information on Montgomery's disappearance is asked to call the FBI at 215-418-4000 or Northwest Detectives at 215-686-3353. - Aubrey Whelan
