Missing Teen Found by Patch Reader
Michael Dinnien was returned home Sunday afternoon when a Patch reader recognized the teen.
A Horsham teen who had been missing for three days was returned to his mother after a Patch reader spotted the boy on Sunday morning.
After a reader posted a plea for help on the Perkiomen Valley Patch Facebook page, an alert went out to all area patches that Mike Dinnien was missing, and the teen was picked up after a Patch reader recognized him and “held him at their home” until Dinnien’s mother, Liz Atchison, picked him up.
Almost 500 readers "recommended" the initial Perkiomen Valley Patch post on Facebook, and it was shared by Patches throughout the county.
"The article was a key part of reaching the right people, in order to have people see his face," she said. "They recognized him because of [Patch's] post."
