It has now been eight days since 21-year-old Shane Montgomery went missing Thanksgiving morning.

“It might be a big night that we can catch a lot of kids and all we need is one kid who thinks they may know something,” said Shane’s aunt Marianne Wittman.

Eyewitness News was there as family and friends posted fliers along South Street in Philadelphia. They also talked with bar-goers.

“We’re just saturating the city. We’re all over the place where college kids would go, trying to hit happy hours. Somebody down this way may have been in Manayunk that night,” said Shane’s uncle Fred Wittman.

The reward for information in the search for Shane Montgomery currently stands at $40,000.
