Some 500 people spent the holiday weekend looking for Pierce Crowley, posting fliers about the teen’s disappearance in Westchester, Connecticut, Manhattan and the Bronx.

School and community groups have also been sending out email alerts, asking people to keep an eye out for teen.

His parents said the Iona Prep freshman was upset and “in a fragile state” when he went missing on Friday.

“Our family loves and misses Pierce and we are very worried for him,” said his mother Gretchen Crowley. “The last four days and four nights have seemed like an eternity.”

His father Peter Crowley said his son has never gone missing before and so far, the family has no leads on where he might be.

“Pierce needs to know how much his family and friends love him,” said Peter Crowley. “He needs to know people just want him home safely. He’s not in any trouble.”

The 15-year-old was last seen near the White Plains Metro-North train station on Ferris Avenue wearing dark jeans, a blue Florida Gators short sleeve shirt and black sneakers with lime green trim.
