Harley Dilly set off for school the morning of December 20 wearing a puffy maroon jacket and grey sweatpants. The Ohio 14-year-old was captured by a surveillance camera between 6am and 7am in the vicinity of his Port Clinton home and his school campus—but he never made it to school, and he hasn't been seen since, WSYX reports. The search for him has now been expanded nationwide, CNN reports.

"If you're out there and you're hearing this or seeing this we all want you home," the teen's grandfather said at a Sunday night vigil, per WTVG. "Your mom feels, is in the deepest depression you've ever seen. She needs you to lay on her and hug her like you used to. We miss you, son. Come home, please." Port Clinton police say they have no evidence Dilly was abducted or injured. A $7,000 reward for information that helps to bring him home is being offered. (More missing teen stories.)
