Police, Family Search for Missing Bridgeville Man
Jim Slack of Bridgeville went missing early Wednesday morning after a concert at Stage "AE" in Pittsburgh.
Police are searching for a 25-year-old Bridgeville man who went missing early Wednesday morning after a concert in Pittsburgh.
Jim Slack was last seen at Stage “AE” when he was separated from a friend while they were at a concert inside the North Side venue.
His sister, Maureen Shields, said his family is desperately searching for him and asking the public for help. They’ve already had radio stations alert the public, and friends on Facebook are making others aware of his description.
“It sure is awesome everyone is getting the word out and trying to help,” Shields said. “This is very scary and we just want to find him.”
Bridgeville police said Slack is 5 feet, 10 inches tall, weighs about 160 pounds, has blond hair and a light beard. He was wearing a green and black hooded sweatshirt with a tie-dyed T-shirt under, and had a Penguins baseball cap.
Anyone with information about Slack’s whereabouts is asked to contact police at 412-279-6911.
The situation is upsetting Slack’s family as they work feverishly to find the 2004 Chartiers Valley High School graduate.
Shields said he went to the concert with a female friend when they were somehow separated. She received a ride from a mutual friend, although they drove around the area looking for him. The friend talked to him on the phone briefly, but he was apparently intoxicated and too disoriented to tell them where he was located.
“This is not in his character,” Shields said. “He is very much a family person.”
The family contacted his barge job at Imperial Towing, but he hasn’t checked in there either. They’re now canvassing the area with fliers and trying to spread information on social networks.
Their simple message on Facebook is this: “If you know anything about his whereabouts please contact the Slack family day or night 412-221-5795. We all love him very much and want nothing more (than) see him home safely.”
