Did some research on facebook, found some friends and they are searching for him. 1 friend said he was last seen in the river in Lowell. Not sure what the weather was that day/night. Can't find why he was out there at that time (2am) could be some kind of party of something. This is all 2nd hand info, nothing confirmed.
