    KY - Andrew Compton, 18, Sullivan U student, 28 Oct 2010 *G. O'Bryan guilty*

    Andrew Compton never went more than a day without talking to his parents.

    So when his parents, who live in Carmel, Ind., hadn’t heard from the 18-year-old Sullivan University freshman they started to worry.

    But after his roommate told them that Andrew hadn’t checked in with any of his friends for a couple of days, they became certain something was wrong.

    Andrew has been missing since Oct. 28. He was last seen in the 1600 block of Lucia Avenue near Bardstown Road in front of an acquaintance’s home, his father, John Compton said.

    Compton filed a missing persons report with the Carmel Police Department last Saturday. The Carmel police subsequently contacted Louisville Metro Police to check into Andrew’s disappearance.

    A Louisville police spokesman confirmed that the Crimes Against Children Unit was investigating the matter. But, police cannot definitively say whether they suspect foul play because of a lack of evidence, said Dwight Mitchell, a department spokesman.

    Mitchell said he could not provide details about the ongoing investigation and Lt. Charlie Harting with Carmel Police — who took the missing persons report from Andrew’s father — deferred comment to Louisville police because Andrew disappeared in Louisville.

    Andrew graduated from Carmel High School in May and was attending Sullivan’s culinary program with aspirations of becoming a chef, because “he loved pastries and finer foods,” according to his mother Angela.

    John Compton said police told him that they have questioned a person who Andrew met online and who allegedly picked up the teen from his dorm the day he disappeared.

    Police have not released that person’s name nor has the person been charged,
    Mitchell said.

    The family believes Andrew also had one previous encounter with the person prior to Oct. 27, according to Andrew’s personal e-mails they have read.


    His mother said dorm video security footage she has seen shows Andrew leaving without carrying anything or having a backpack or suitcase or anything that would indicate he planned on not returning to the dorm that same evening.

    She described her son as “very quiet” and “very reserved” and someone who might be easily overpowered. He is described as being 5-foot-8 and weighs 125 pounds.

    He was wearing a gray hoodie, blue/gray v-neck shirt with designs on it, light khaki–colored shorts, white socks and a brown belt, according to a flier the family prepared.

    There's been a Facebook "event" sent out to spread the word.

    More information and photos of Andrew (appears to be a missing persons site set up by his family/friends)

    I hope he contacts his family if he's not being held against his will...his mom's worried that he's dead.

    I wonder what the man had to say about the last time he saw Andrew...that he just walked off into the nite? he dropped him off somewhere?
    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    From the video on that link I posted, the guy admits picking Andrew up that night and taking him to his place but then he says that Andrew left his place on foot. Yah right. It is already been more than a week so this isn't looking very good. There are predators on those dating sites looking for young women and men. A young, shy, exploring Andrew seems an easy target for one of those predators. JMO.

    Thanks - Andrew leaving on foot sounds like what I expected...this is almost like an episode of Law & Order....as soon as I read 'online dating site' I was like

    It's possible that Andrew did leave on foot & something else bad happened to him.

    FWIW, there's a report of a body found near Ft. Knox - that's only 35-40 miles away, right?

    Has it been reported what dating site he was on? Just wondering if it was something like match.com or something like those roleplaying video game chat ones that people meet up from?

    Since the police have already talked with this guy,
    I hope they have ran a criminal background check on him.

    Andrew left on foot? That is just laughable.
    Let's hope the police are looking at security camera footage
    along the way.

    definitely not looking good. at least they have a good starting point and I'd hope the man is under surveillance.

    would be great if they got a subpoena to examine his hard drive. presumably they've got Andrew's already and are looking at it.

    very sad.

    all I've heard is that his parents got into his email account & saw something(s) related to an online dating site...they weren't specific about which site.
