'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

A missing North Huntingdon Township man was found in a construction storage trailer along Johnson Street.

Township police Chief Andrew J. Lisiecki said Robert Whirlow, 68, was transported to a local hospital as a precaution Friday around 9:30 a.m.

“He appears to be in excellent condition,” the chief reported.

Whirlow was described as a white man with a gray beard and glasses. He stands 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighs 190 pounds.

Officers said he suffers from heart problems and diabetes, and was last seen Thursday around 8 p.m.

Searchers spent hours on the ground and in the air that evening looking for Whirlow. The search resumed Friday morning and Whirlow was located.
