Missing Philadelphia Student's Keys Found in Schuylkill River

The car keys belonging to a missing Philadelphia student were found in the Schuylkill River on Sunday, a family member told the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Shane Montgomery, 21, was seen walking along the river after he left a bar in Manayunk, and his uncle, Kevin Verbrugghe, told the Inquirier the keys were found south of the parking lot in that area.

Montgomery disappeared early Thanksgiving morning after going out with friends and leaving Kildare’s Irish Pub. Divers were searching the river for any trace of the West Chester University student.

A group of volunteer divers from New Jersey, the Garden State Underwater Unit, searched for four hours Sunday.

The keys were confirmed to be Montgomery’s after they were tried in the student’s front door and match, Verbrugghe told the Inquirier.

The keys were found in the water near the edge of the river, by a footbridge, which video surveillance showed Montgomery using when he was last seen.

"The last place that Shane's on video is on the bridge right behind the nail salon," Karen Montgomery, Shane Montgomery’s mother, told the Philadelphia Daily News. "They found his keys toward the river to the left. My heart is broken. My son is somewhere in that river, and I need to find him and I need to bring him home.”

There have been few clues to what happened to the missing 21-year-old student.

"I appreciate everybody's prayers and thoughts, and want people to know that we aren't going to stop looking until we find Shane," Karen Montgomery said. "That's what we need, is prayers and thoughts, and we need to find him and bring him home."

A reward of $65,000 has been offered for information about Montgomery’s disappearance.
