Sharp missing for 11 years

This Memorial Day weekend, like every one for the last 11 years, a local family is asking that people remember their son and note and report any sign they see of him this weekend.

Damien Sharp has been missing for 11 years.

Sharp was last seen on May 25, 2002, when he was dropped off at a Memorial Day weekend party.

His family has not seen him, nor conclusively learned of his fate in that time. But they are still searching.

“The family hasn’t given up,” Janeane Shanahan, Damien’s mother, said.

She asks that people in the woods and along the river this Memorial Day weekend take note of anything they see that might be a clue to Sharp’s location.

When he was last seen, Sharp was carrying a black backpack and possibly using aluminum crutches.
