The Crowley family of Manursing Way is asking everyone they know to help find their 15 year old son Pierce, last seen Friday in White Plains.
As of Monday morning, White Plains police continue to search for the boy and did not have any official updates on the case.
According to a News 12 report, Crowley left New York Hospital in White Plains with a friend on Friday and went to The Cheesecake Factory restaurant. The two took a taxi to the White Plains Metro-North station and parted ways. Crowley was last seen in the cab and may have been upset.
White Plains Police have released the following information about the boy:
Pierce Crowley was last seen on May 25, 2012 in the area of 21 Bloomingdale Road, White Plains, NY. He is described as a male, white, 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing 150 lbs, with light brown hair, blue eyes and braces. He was last seen wearing a bright blue Florida Gators short sleeve T-shirt with dark blue jeans and black sneakers with lime green trim. Please contact the White Plains Police Department at (914)422-6111 with any information.
Crowley family friend Peggy Dunne said more than 500 volunteers have mobilized to look for the Iona Prep ninth grader.
Crowley's mother sent a touching email in the hours after Pierce first went missing asking friends check teen hang-out spots such as skate parks, train stations and even Playland.
The community response has been immediate and heartfelt. Though Pierce attends Iona Prep in New Rochelle, the Rye High School Parents Organization immediately used its distribution list to get information out about the search. And parents throughout Rye, Rye Brook and other surrounding areas have been re-sending emails and newsletters throughout the weekend.
Pierce's peers have also responded lighting up social media sites like Facebook, Tumblr and Reddit with words of encouragement for the Crowley family.
