$1,000 Reward Offered in Search for Missing Pekin Boy: Police

Police in central Illinois say a $1,000 reward is being offered for information in the disappearance of a 13-year-old boy who has been missing for two weeks.

Pekin police said Crimestoppers offered the reward Monday for information in their search for Robert Bee Jr.

"We continue to work around the clock to locate Robert," police said. 

The boy's mother reported him missing on Nov. 18. Pekin police designated him a runaway. Pekin police spokesman Mike Eeten says the department dedicated an investigation unit after the boy couldn't be found for ensuing days. 

The boy is 4-foot-6, weighs 110 pounds and was last seen wearing and red and gray shirt, jeans and red shoes. Police say they haven't issued an Amber Alert because they don't have evidence the boy was abducted. Authorities have issued a Missing and Endangered Persons Advisory.

Anyone with information is asked to text Crimstoppers at 274637.
