Authorities say he became separated from them and was escorted out of the bar by a bouncer around 1 a.m. after stumbling on a bar stool. No one has seen Shane since.
About 500 volunteers, led by Greater Philadelphia Search and Rescue, were split into groups of 25. Many of them were carrying flyers, going door to door as they searched Main Street in Manayunk and the nearby banks of the Schuylkill River.
A tree lighting and caroling event scheduled for Saturday night in Manayunk was cancelled as a result of the search, and officials were planning to hold a candlelight vigil at Canal View Park.READ MORE: CBS3 SummerFest: 2 St. Joe's Grads Bringing New Tiki Cruise Experience For Adults To Wildwood
