UPDATE: Missing Lower Swatara Township teen found, and is safe

Posted

UPDATE: The missing teen from Lower Swatara Township has been found.

Frank E. Williamson Jr., township manager and director of public safety, told the Press & Journal that police received a tip that he was seen at Dunkin' Donuts, 2820 Paxton St. Employees there confirmed he had been in the store earlier. 

“While reviewing video from the store, officers were notified that he may be next door in the Advance Auto Parts store,” Williamson said via email.

Police located him there and brought his mother to the location to talk to him.

“He was physically OK, but was transported by EMS to a hospital for evaluation,” Williamson said.

Williamson said a tip from the public, probably due to the media’s assistance, helped lead to finding the teen.

Here is the original story:

Lower Swatara Township police are investigating a missing persons case, involving a 15-year-old from Brookside Drive.

Cory Lopez is about 5 feet, 10 inches tall, 110 pounds, with a thin build. He walks on his toes, according to police. He might be wearing black jeans and a black hooded sweatshirt. He was last seen by his family at 1:30 a.m. July 6. They reported him missing to the police department at 5:30 a.m.

Lopez is reported to be friendly. He is on several medications, all of which were left at the residence. He also left without money and his cellphone. Lopez is originally from California but has been living in the township for about one year.

A canine track by Summit Search and Rescue ended at Zeke’s, a gas station/mini-mart on Eisenhower Boulevard.

Police are asking anyone with information to call 911 immediately, or call Lower Swatara Township police via Dauphin County Control at 717-558-6900.
