Carol Hopton, the Founder of Blue Dragon Fly Foundation believes that autistic teen Shamar Harrigan who has been missing since November 14th believes he is being held against his will.
The Dragon Fly Foundation has organized a search for Shamar in his hometown Wilikies on Monday, alongside the police, family members, and other organizations.
“It is an extensive area and we want to hopefully get to parts of Wilikies that are less accessible by foot,” she said.
The search will begin at 9 a.m at the Wilikies police station.
Hopton, says her organization intends to start services for autistic teens like Shamar, one of the main reasons behind the latest initiative.
She is appealing to residents who can take part in the search.
His family has been doing all within their limited powers while the public continues to look, along with the police.
The Calvin Ayre Foundation has used helicopters to search for him scouring the country’s east coast. But there was no sign, not even a clue where Shamar could be.
The helicopter searched the eastern side of the island looking below the Willikies, Pares
and Glanvilles areas but found nothing.
The family is offering a $5000 reward for anyone with information leading to his whereabouts.
The 19-year-old is said to have the mental age of a seven-year-old and needs his regular medication.
When he left his home on November 14, he was dressed in a black and white shirt and light blue jeans.
He also has a pink and blue backpack. He is described as 5ft 3 and dark in complexion.
Anyone who spots Harrigan is asked to call the family at 789-5164 or the nearest police station.
