The search for missing teen Brandon Eckert continued Wednesday.


  • WEST WHITELAND — The search for a missing teen who was discovered
    missing early Tuesday continued into a second day, police said in a
    statement Wednesday. West Whiteland Detective Scott Pezick confirmed that Brandon Eckert, 16, was still missing Wednesday afternoon.


  • Multiple law enforcement agencies continued a coordinated search
    Wednesday that included members of the FBI, state police, the county’s
    Major Incident Response Team, Chester County Detectives, and the

    increasingly concerned for his safety,” District Attorney Tom Hogan said
    Wednesday. “We are asking anyone with information to come forward. We
    are bringing all available resources to bear to bring Brandon safely home.”


  • Eckert was last seen at 5:30 a.m. Tuesday morning at the group
    home where he lives in the 700 block of King Road. He was discovered

    WEST WHITELAND TOWNSHIP, Pa. (CBS) — A mentally disabled teenager who
    had been missing since Tuesday was found safe early Sunday morning.




    Police in West Whiteland Township say a plane with high-tech
    equipment located 16-year-old Brandon Eckert hiding in the woods near
    where he went missing.

    Other than being hungry and dehydrated, authorities say he appeared
    healthy, but Eckert was taken to Paoli Memorial Hospital as a
    precaution.
