PORT CLINTON, Ohio — It's been more than 10 days since 14-year-old Harley Dilly was last seen in Port Clinton.
Since then, his community has rallied in attempt to find him.
Now, police are asking the public to be mindful of how they help in the search for Harley. Police warn the public to avoid spreading rumors, and to allow law enforcement to continue the investigation without interruption.
Agencies from local, state and federal partners have joined the search.
Port Clinton Police Chief Rob Hickman says the best way the public can help is to continue passing out flyers and sharing the Port Clinton Police Department's social media updates. Don't share social media posts from unofficial sources, police say.
"Please allow the professionals involved in this case to continue to do their job – we are working tirelessly and will continue to do so until Harley is brought home and reunited with his family," Hickman wrote in a Facebook post Tuesday morning.
Harley was last seen wearing a maroon-colored puffer jacket, grey sweatpants and black tennis shoes as he was leaving for school Dec. 20. He has brown hair, green eyes and wears glasses.
Anyone with information on the case or Harley's location should call Port Clinton police at 419-734-3121, or the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 800-843-5678.
A $7,000 reward is available to anyone who can provide information on Harley's location.
