HOUSTON — Police at the University of St. Thomas are hoping the public can help them find a missing student.
Angela Nguyen was last seen on campus one week ago. She left Guinan Residence Hall around 6:13 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 22.
The UST police department was alerted two days later that she was missing.
Nguyen is about 5 feet tall and weighs about 110 pounds.
She was last seen wearing a black coat and sneakers and carrying a white and red or pink backpack.
People who know Nguyen said it's unusual for her to be gone this long without contacting anyone.
"It’s alarming because usually students don’t just walk out,” said UST Police Chief H. E. Jenkins. “So, as a community, we are extremely concerned about what’s going on. She was very active in her student life, I mean, she has a very good grade point average, she was involved in a lot of clubs, a lot of people knew her.”
According to Jenkins, surveillance cameras recorded Ngyuen walking out of Guinan Hall, where she lives, and walking down the sidewalk. That was the last time anyone has reported seeing her.
Police said, there’s no evidence of foul play which limits what police can do.
Jenkins said, it appears Nguyen had some of the contents of her wallet with her and her two phones. When they call the phones, one goes straight to voicemail and the other rings.
“With the community’s help, we hope and pray for Angela’s safe return,” UST Police Chief H.E. Jenkins said in a statement.
If you’ve seen Nguyen or know anything about the case, call the University of St. Thomas Police Department at 713-525-3888 or the Houston Police Department at 832-394-1840.
