Andrew Phillips Missing, 17-year-old teen missing from Pittston Township.
A 17-Year-old Boy has been missing since Sunday morning.
The Police Officers of PITTSTON TOWNSHIP, LUZERNE COUNTY said – “Every one of the officers is affected by it. We treat it as if he is one of our own,” “We are working tirelessly to find him.
According to police, Andrew was seen on video surveillance leaving his home with a backpack Sunday morning, just after midnight.
Since then, police believe Andrew has been hitchhiking and was even supposedly spotted in Binghamton, New York.
“We have strong information that he was seen there. We are following up on that,” Angelella said.
We aren’t sure what’s in the young boys backpack when he left home. But police have ruled out Andrew riding buses to get out of town- and driving a car himself.
Angelella says hitchhiking poses its own set of dangers, especially for a minor- and is hoping to find Andrew soon and safe.
If anyone sees Andrew, please call 911, the Pittston Township Police Department, or the department’s anonymous tip line at 833-782-9411.
