Police in central Illinois are still investigating the disappearance of a 13-year-old boy who has been missing for nearly two weeks.
The Pekin Daily Times reported that police there offered a $1,000 reward Monday for help in their search for the boy, Robert Bee Jr.
The boy’s mother reported him missing on Nov. 18. Pekin police designated him a runaway. Pekin police spokesman Mike Eeten said the department dedicated an investigation unit after the boy couldn’t be found in the ensuing days.
