Authorities have expanded the search for a Princeton University college student who has been missing for five days.
Misrach Ewunetie, 20, was last seen on campus around 3 a.m. Friday outside of Scully Hall, the dormitory where she lives.
Authorities say that the search has now expanded to nearby Carnegie Lake, just on the outskirts of the main campus. Boats have been traveling up and down the waterway since early Wednesday morning.
Students have been receiving regular updates about the search from the university. Noah Rawlings has been waiting to hear more information on his fellow student, including who saw her last and where was she headed. He says he finds the situation disturbing.
"It is hard to believe that it could happen here. It seems like an extremely safe campus," he says. "In the beginning of fall break, there's still lots of activity, lots of students on campus."
Ewunetie has been described as 5 feet, 4 inches tall and 130 pounds. She has dark brown hair, brown eyes and a light brown complexion.
Anyone with information about Ewunetie’s disappearance should contact the Princeton Department of Public Safety at 609-258-1000.
