'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.

Pittsburgh police are looking for a Schenley High School senior who hasn't been seen or heard from since Friday.

Joseph Harris, 17, of Sheraden, was last seen Downtown boarding a Port Authority bus bound for Brighton Heights, where he told friends he was going to meet a man named "G," city police Lt. Kevin Kraus said.

Harris friends and relatives told investigators they don't know who "G" is or why Harris was headed to meet him. Harris' cell phone has been turned off since friends saw him boarding the bus at 9 p.m. Friday, Kraus said.

"This is a kid who by all accounts is responsible and punctual and keeps in touch with his family," Kraus said. "He isn't a kid who was in any trouble or showed any signs or hints of trouble. We don't know who 'G' is but we don't have any indication that Joseph Harris was headed to meet someone for illegal reasons."
