Another journalism gaff.

From all reports I have read on the case Lacina had been missing for at least a week before being reported missing by his father....not the next day as is reported in this article.

I can understand how friends even in the same dorm might not realize he was missing because of the varied schedules, but it would seem to me if he had made it through to his senior year in college and he had regular attendance that the professors in the smaller classes would have noticed and it should have been reported as soon as at least three days absence without hearing from him.

It isn't like professors need to know your personal business but just like high school or even in older folks these days it's for your own safety and well being especially in the cold winter.

I haven't seen it written but I wonder if he was dressed properly for winter as you can become disoriented very quickly especially if you touch something of heavy metal. That happened to me when I was dressed properly. As I was leaving work on a frigid night I had just walked across the street to put the heavy night deposit bags in the bank. The pull down door was very heavy metal and when I held it down long enough to put in the three large bank deposit bags my brain must have gone numb. Thankfully I had gotten the bags in the pull down and the door flipped shut and almost immediately I felt normal again I guess because it was such a short time.
