SJU Student Missing

Posted by on Nov 13, 2002 | No Comments

(Source: St. John’s University) Thank you for your continued prayers and to those of you who have been assisting in the search. Today, over 200 volunteers (including 100 Minnesota National Guard troops) physically searched over 20 square miles of land, even more by helicopter, including the water and waterways on and around our campus and I-94.

Regrettably, we have yet to find any information about Josh’s whereabouts or circumstances of his disappearance. As we move forward, there will be patrols strategically searching the area. The Stearns County Sheriff’s Department will continue to coordinate the investigation, including identification of people who may have seen Josh before and after Saturday evening. At this point, no additional volunteers will be required unless and until specific information leads to that need-in which case we will alert you via e-mail.

As you reflect on these events, if you should happen to remember seeing or hearing anything that seems unusual to you in light of Josh’s disappearance, please contact SJU Life Safety Services at 363-2144. As we seek to understand what occurred and to bring Josh back to SJU and his family, please continue to keep Josh’s family and friends in your prayers.
