Search continues for missing student


The search for missing MIT student Daniel Mun is nearing the end of its second full week and there was still no sign Tuesday of the 200-pound junior biology major, who vanished from his fraternity house on Dec. 5.

MIT Police have joined Boston, Cambridge and State Police as well as the FBI in the search. No foul play is suspected and police are treating the incident as a missing-persons case.

With a shroud of concern hanging over the campus hoping for the safe return of the student, MIT officials have provided counseling through MIT Medical to members of the MIT community who need it. Officials have also provided information regarding the missing student to various media outlets since his disappearance.

Police have conducted the investigation consistent with missing-persons cases--tracking credit card and similar personal activity, contacting area hospitals and medical treatment centers with a description of the young man known as "Dong" to his friends. Officials have remained in contact with his parents in Missouri.

Daniel Mun was last seen at Chi Phi early on the morning of Friday, Dec. 5. Anyone with information regarding his disappearance should call MIT police at (617) 253-1212.
