Missing Person New York, Craig Frear

Craig Frear, 17, was last seen walking into the woods behind a friend’s apartment in Cambridge Manor, New York on June 27, 2004.  The path would take him to his Scotia home on Yorkshire Court home.  Two kids who say they saw Frear just before he went missing said he lifted his finger to mouth as if to say “Shhh” just before he disappeared, reports the Time Union.  Later it was discovered he had stopped going to his job.  That day he was to come home and talk with his parents about it, but instead he went to the apartment to visit a young woman who lived there.  He has not been seen since.

The police searched another area of the woods when they received a tip in 2014, but nothing was found.

“I strongly believe there is somebody out there who knows what happened to my son,” Craig’s mother says. “I believe that keeping it out there, keeping the case alive, it’s kind of my only chance at this point. I’m on my knees, hoping there’s someone out there who can help us,” reports the Time Union.

Since you’re here

I have a small favor to ask. More people are reading Missing Persons of America than ever and asking for their family member to be shared. I do it because I believe that every single missing person matters, and they all need equal attention. It can’t be done any quicker, and with less boundaries than social media. Last year, I was bombarded daily with more and more cases to share.  I found myself falling behind as I work 10 hours a day to feature missing people. Also, the network has grown so large that we are in need of an internet host that can serve the growth, so the website does not go down. Many don’t realize that Missing Persons of America independent, investigative posting takes a lot of time and hard work to produce. Frankly, I need funds. If everyone who reads this website, who likes it, can help, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $1, you can support Missing Persons of America and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
