Family pleads for safe return of missing North Huntingdon man



Police are looking for information in the disappearance of a North Huntingdon man.

Jacob Lipp, 27, was last seen in the morning hours of Dec. 16 after spending time with his girlfriend in Pittsburgh, said authorities.

According to police, Lipp and his girlfriend had been drinking at the Static Bar in the strip district. The couple got into a fight and the woman drove off, leaving Lipp outside the McDondald’s restaurant on Penn Avenue, said detectives. Investigators said the woman circled the block, and then returned, but Lipp was gone and hasn't been seen since.

Channel 11’s Jodine Costanzo spoke to Lipp’s father, Steven Lipp, who said his son is a good person and the family was concerned when Lipp did not come home for Christmas.

“There were no issues at home prior to that evening and he had no reason to take off without returning home," said Steven Lipp.

Detectives questioned the woman since she was the last person to see Lipp, but said she is not a suspect in his disappearance.

Lipp’s father sent Channel 11 this plea to his son, "Jake, where are you? I am looking for you and I will not stop until I find you. Your room is flooded with tears. Come home Jake."

Police said it's too soon to know if foul play is involved. Lipp did not have his cellphone when he vanished and there has been no activity on his bank cards, according to detectives.

Investigators are in the process of getting surveillance video, hoping that may help to solve this mystery.

Anyone with information is asked to call Pittsburgh police.
