Barrington police still searching for missing teenager

Collin Phillips twice reported missing this month

Posted

A 16-year-old Barrington boy has been missing from his home for more than two weeks.

Police said Collin Phillips left his home in Barrington on May 12 and has not returned. A family member reported Collin missing on Sunday, May 17 at about 1:45 p.m.

Police said Collin stands about six feet tall, weighs 160 pounds and has brown eyes and long black hair. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie and regularly wears dark-colored clothes.

Barrington police said Collin has been spotted numerous times in Warren, and officials believe he may be staying with someone in that town.

The May 12 disappearance marked the second time this month that Collin went missing from his home.

Collin's father stopped into the police station on Monday, May 4 at 9:53 p.m. to report his son missing. At that time, Barrington police notified surrounding police departments and then checked with the teenager's grandmother, who said the boy had been at her home but left there also.

The teenager's father said his son often likes to frequent areas with free wifi. Police checked on some possible locations but were unable to locate the local teenager.

The boy returned to his home on May 7, and police spoke to him then. Officers asked the boy where he had been, but Collin refused to speak with police.

Anyone with more information about Collin should call Barrington police at 401-437-3933.
