College student goes missing in Philly

After leaving a candle at the edge of the Manayunk Canal, a woman is comforted by another during a vigil, for Shane Montgomery, at a park across from Kildare’s Irish Pub in the Manayunk section of Philadelphia on Saturday, Nov. 29, 2014.

PHILADELPHIA — A college senior has been reported missing after a night out with friends at a Philadelphia bar.

Police said Shane Montgomery, 21, was home from West Chester University and met up with friends Wednesday night in a crowded bar in the Manayunk neighborhood.

Montgomery became separated from them. And when a barman saw him stumble off a stool, Montgomery was escorted out by a bouncer at 2 a.m. Thursday. He hasn’t been seen since.

His mother, Karen, is offering a $10,000 reward for help finding him.

About 200 volunteers have been searching Main Street in Manayunk and the nearby banks of the Schuylkill River.

Montgomery is a liberal arts major and a former high school runner. He is 5-foot-11, 130 pounds, with brown hair and green eyes.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
