UPDATE: Pine Hill police report Dwayne Tribbett has been located.


PINE HILL — Police are looking for an "endangered" teen last heard from in the early hours of the New Year.

Dwayne Tribbett didn't return home as expected at 12:15 a.m. Sunday morning, and didn't initially return calls from his mother to his mobile phone, police said.

Finally, at 2:30 a.m., his mother reached him by phone, and he said he was walking in an "extremely dark area," but didn't know his own whereabouts, police said. Family members told police he sounded possibly intoxicated.

The GPS from his phone last showed him close to Cooper Foley Road and Wakefield Road in Winslow Township, but he still hasn't been located, police said.

Tribbett is a black male, 5 feet and 8 inches tall, weighing 130 pounds, with brown eyes. His hair is shaved on the sides, and longer and curly on the top, dyed light brown or blonde. He has a light brown complexion and a piercing on the right side of his nose, as well as another on his lower left lip.

He was last seen wearing black "tight" jeans, a black and white jacket and black Timberland brand boots, police said.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact Detective Matthew Pierson of the Pine Hill Police Department at 856-783-1549 x 412 or mpierson@pinehillpd.com.
