Authorities in New Jersey and Princeton University public safety officials are using drones, helicopters and jet skis in their search for a 20-year-old rising star student who has not been seen since early Friday morning.
Misrach Ewunetie, a 20-year-old from the Cleveland, Ohio area, has been missing since around 3 Friday when she was seen in the area of the Scully Hall dormitory on the Princeton University campus, Princeton, New Jersey, the Police Department said in a news release.
Ewunetie was described as being 5 feet, 4 inches tall and about 130 pounds with brown eyes and black hair.

A LinkedIn profile that appeared to belong to the missing woman paints the picture of a rising star who spent two summers as a business analyst for McKinsey & Company in Ohio. She attended Villa Angela-St. Joseph High School in Cleveland and received a full scholarship to the prestigious Ivy League school, the high school proudly announced in 2020.
Ewunetie also participated in an eight-week summer program at Stanford University, her LinkedIn shows, and held an internship at Bank of America the summer before her freshman year.
There was no update regarding the search for Ewunetie as of 10:15 a.m. Wednesday, when the university warned students of “an increased law enforcement presence on and around campus, including the use of a helicopter, drones and personal watercraft.”
According to The Daily Princetonian, students received a message just before 9:20 p.m. Monday that described how Ewunetie was reported missing and had last been seen near the residence hall where she lived.
