Cops in Camden County are searching for a missing man but they're urging the public not to approach him if he's spotted.

That's because family members say 38-year-old Shawn Massey of Gibbsboro has mental health issues and he has been known to become aggressive if he's approached by people.

Acting Camden County Prosecutor Jill S. Mayer and Pine Hill Police Chief Christopher Winters say Massey was reported missing to Pine Hill Police by family members who said he was last seen leaving his parents’ home on December 23rd. He has not been heard from since.

Detectives urge anyone who sees Massey or knows of his whereabouts not to make contact with him and instead call police.

If you have any information that could help law enforcement locate Massey, please either call 911 or the Pine Hill Police Department at (856) 783-4900.
