20-year-old Misrach Ewunetie, a student at Princeton University, was last seen near Scully Hall, her apartment building, on Friday at three in the morning, according to authorities.
Since Friday, a Princeton University student has been missing, and police are frantically looking for any sign of the Ivy League junior.
The university’s Department of Public Safety reports that Misrach Ewunetie, 20, was last seen near Scully Hall, her residence building, in the southeast region of the New Jersey campus, at around 3 a.m. on Friday.
As they searched for Ewunetie, the department informed the college community on Wednesday that there would be “enhanced law enforcement presence on and around campus, including the utilisation of a helicopter, drones, and watercraft.”
Ewunetie, 20, disappeared while the university was taking a brief fall break following the completion of exams.
According to The Daily Princetonian, Princeton administration informed the campus community that she was missing through its emergency notification system at 9:19 p.m. on Monday.
The student “had not been in touch with her family or friends in several days,” New College West (NCW) dean Anne Caswell-Klein said in an email to the community, according to The Daily Princetonian.
The institution stated that Ewunetie is 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs around 130 lbs in a notice requesting assistance from the public.
She has brown eyes, black hair and light brown skin, the university said.
According to the VASJ website, Ewunetie graduated from Cleveland, Ohio’s Villa Angela-St. Joseph High School as the top student in her class of 107, with a cumulative GPA of 4.31.
She was given a full scholarship for four years to Princeton University and at the time she expressed interest in majoring in science on the VASJ website.
She remarked, “I’ve had the chance to truly think through what I want for the future throughout my time at VASJ. “My friends have encouraged me to try new things while I’ve been here, and that has allowed me to step outside of my comfort zone,” she said.
