Reward In Shane Montgomery’s Disappearance Rises to $25,000

Meanwhile, more details about the night he went missing.

The reward for information about the disappearance of Shane Montgomery has risen to $25,000, and 6ABC reports that new details have emerged about his last-known whereabouts.

Montgomery, a 21-year-old West Chester University student home for the holiday, was last seen the night before Thanksgiving at Kildare’s, a Manayunk bar.

Jim Townsend, the Director of Operations of Kildare’s, explained Monday that there was no altercation or friction surrounding Shane’s departure from the bar and emphasized that he was not acting drunk.

According to Townsend, Montgomery then met up with a relative, who is a Kildare’s employee, who informed him it was closing time. He says it was 1:50 a.m. when the relative walked Shane to the front door where they were met with security who saw Shane out.

Townsend says, “Other than the front door staff, Shane did not have any interaction with any other management or security staff or cause a disruption as he left the restaurant. He was respectful and left the premises on his own.”

Montgomery was last seen heading south from the bar on Main Street. A ping from his cellphone was detected about an hour later near the CVS Pharmacy, also on Main Street.

The FBI has joined the search for Montgomery; his disappearance has been highlighted on more than 30 digitized billboards across the region.
