YORKTOWN, N.Y. - After more than 24 hours since Kyle Jabusch's parents found their son missing, Yorktown police are still searching for him and asking anyone with information to call the department.
Jabusch was last seen at his Mohegan Lake residence at 1 a.m. Monday, Jan. 24 by his parents. They told police that when they checked in on him hours later at 7:30 a.m. he was missing.
Initially, Lt. Kevin Soravilla said his disappearance was troubling and foreboding. "We believe his safety may be in danger, but are not releasing further details," Soravilla said Tuesday.
But Wednesday morning Soravilla elaborated on the reasons why he said police believe his safety might be in danger.
"We say that due to the fact that he left without much money, and he's out there on his own," he said. "Anybody's safety could this in jeopardy. This is a precaution to indicate that we need to find him."
Police are asking anyone with any information about Jabusch or his whereabouts to contact them at 914-962-4141.
"When there's a missing person, basically it's a lot of detective legwork. We try to contact his acquaintances and interview and find out any information we can," Soravilla said. "We check places he usually frequented. It's a lot of checking out people he talked to and places he might have went."
Soravilla said the Westchester County Police were assisting in the search and have provided trained dogs to try and determine Jabusch's movement.
"He was a cross country runner and he occasionally used parks for running so we checked there with the dogs, and that was negative," he said. Soravilla described Jabusch as a white male, about 6 feet tall, 150 pounds with blond hair and blue eyes.
