Youngsville Community Lends Helping Hand to Law Enforcement as Search for Burham Continues

July 12, 2023

YOUNGSVILLE, Pa. – The Youngsville community is doing its part to aid law enforcement in their pursuit of escaped fugitive Michael Burham.

The Pennsylvania State Police are using the Youngsville Fire Hall as the command center in the manhunt for Burham, and with law enforcement personnel in the hundreds from multiple agencies, Youngsville residents have been eager to assist in the form of snacks, drinks, and other items.

“We have such a good community,” said Youngsville Borough Manager Wendy Wilcox. “We put out the call and when someone would come to the door I was sure to tell them thank you. I love this community.”

The Warren County Visitors Bureau provided menus to local restaurants, while businesses like Huey’s and Dairy Queen stepped up with food as well.

Residents are willing and eager to help out as the search for Burham has extended into its sixth day.

Wilcox noted that at this time they are asking for all donations to be held on to as they are overwhelmed with donations and that the borough will post updates if more items are needed.

“The community has come out in full force and we are so thankful,” Wilcox said.
