Boise police continue search for missing boy with the help of rescue dogs

Robert Manwill, 8, has been missing since Friday evening. He was last seen at 9:30 p.m. near his home in the 2800 block of West Cherry Lane.

Idaho Mountain Search and Rescue were called in Saturday morning. Five dogs are searching the area that includes two large canals and the Boise apartment complex where Robert lives near Vista Avenue.

Chris Harry, operations leader with the search and rescue team said the dogs turned up no trace of Robert Saturday afternoon.

Boise Police detectives conducted an extensive area search for Robert during the night, which continued into the morning. There is no evidence of foul play, and it's possible Robert may have spent the night with a friend.

He may have been wearing a brown shirt with writing on the back: "Andy don't need no Mic," or a blue shirt, with a Superman symbol on the front. He was wearing blue jeans and black shoes. He is 4'11," weighs 50 pounds, and has brown hair and brown eyes.

If you've seen Robert, call Ada County Dispatch at 377-6790.
