A Shoreham-Wading River High School freshman was reported missing Tuesday and a search is underway to find him, Suffolk County police confirmed.
Nick Donnelly, 14, was last seen at his home at 3 Chambord Court in Shoreham at 10 a.m. when he left for a run, police said. Nick is 5 foot 3, weighs 105 pounds and has light brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a gray T-shirt.
Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 631-852-8752.
About 40 community members met at Shoreham plaza tonight and dispersed in an effort to locate Nick, according to SWRweekly.com.
Shortly before 10 p.m. Tuesday about 20 members of the search party returned to the plaza.
They said that while police had asked people to avoid the trails while they led a K9 search on the trails near Nick’s home, they have since opened up the trails to search parties.
They said friends and neighbors have been searching trails and surrounding neighborhoods, stretching as far as Rocky Point High School. They said Nick left his house without a cell phone or his wallet.
