    According to North Huntingdon Township Police, they were contacted on Sunday by Max Dervin. Dervin said he hasn’t seen or heard from his 29-year-old son, Matthew Dervin, since Friday.

    According to police, Matthew Dervin made three debit card transactions in the past week in the area of the Waterfront and Squirrel Hill.

    Matthew Dervin’s cellphone is going straight to voicemail and his truck is not at his residence.

    Police say Matthew Dervin hasn’t been seen or heard from since Aug. 8. They also say he used a debit card in the Waterfront/Munhall area and Squirrel Hill the day before...

    Dervin is described as a self-employed carpenter. He also owns a silver 2005 Ford F-150 with license plate no. ZBP 9466.

    Police say his ATM withdrawal before going missing was substantial. Police also say Dervin had “some recent contacts with law enforcement” in Allegheny and Westmoreland counties. It’s unclear what happened.

    Thank you for posting this. I wish LE would specify whether the three debit card purchases were the typical type of merchandise Dervin would have purchased. It's said HE used the card so I assume they've verified his presence at the cash registers via store surveillance footage or the clerks' memory of seeing him.

    This article has much more information:

    It also clarifies that the debit card transactions were money withdrawals from an ATM, not purchases. Dervin himself was seen on surveillance camera footage making the withdrawals.

    Hard to tell if he is taking money out to buy drugs and is holed up with someone, or if he was abducted and one or more actors are forcing him to withdraw the money.
