    Spain - Austin Bice, 22, Madrid, 25 February 2011

    I just found out that Austin is missing in Spain. His father works with me and he's in Spain now helping search for him. Austin also spent time as an intern here and he is a great guy. If anyone is in Spain, please keep your eyes peeled. (This is the first time I've had to post for a missing person, please, excuse me if I have done this wrong.)

    Prayers for Austin!

    Missing SDSU Student!

    I posted this in the missing forum. But, I wanted to get the word out since he's an acquaintance. His father works at the same company I do and Austin also interned here. If anyone on this forum is from Spain, please keep your eyes peeled. Prayers needed, too. Thank you for listening.

    Praying he'll be found... How long has he been missing? (ETA: I read the article above but I didn't see the exact day - I may have missed it)

    He was last seen late Friday night trying to get into a nightclub in Madrid, but was denied admission because he was drunk, according to Spanish media.

    Bice then told the friends he was with he was going to walk home, but apparently never made it.

    When the Carlsbad native and 2007 Torrey Pines High grad did not show up for a basketball game the following day, his roommates contacted authorities.

    Friends have called his two cellphones to no avail.

    Police in Madrid say Bice's credit cards show no activity since his disappearance.

    So sorry to hear about this young man. Here's the latest story in El Pais:

    Not sure they have in in English, but I can translate some in a bit when I'm done decorating my daughters birthday cake.

    Here's a rough translation from Google Translate...

    "The police tell us to trust her, who are seeking"
    Californian student friends of missing on Friday have not yet received any call with clues to his whereabouts


    Do not eat much, not sleeping, is under great pressure. "mood is the father of Austin Taylor Bice, the exchange student who disappeared on Friday night in Madrid after a party, as the young man's roommate . left the house without documentation and with two phones, the track is lost at the entrance to the discotheque La Riviera, in the Avenue de la Virgen del Puerto. The doormen of the club was not allowed to enter the premises because she was "too drunk" , Bice was left waiting at the entrance with a friend, Australian Alexander Fleming, until the young man of 22 years, decided to leave.

    So far they have not received any call the contact number listed on the posters that have stuck around Madrid. "We have no clue, not even joking," says Mary by telephone from La Riviera. Mary is a friend of the roommates in Austin that is also contributing to the spread of the event. Every night call the police. During the first 48 hours should do to report that he had not returned home. Now continue communicating with the agents to collaborate in research. "They tell us to trust them, that they are looking for," but give no details about the case, says the American roommate of 22 years disappeared, Kiara Costa.

    Costa is also concerned about Bice father, who landed in Madrid yesterday morning. "He's in shock," says Mary, another of those close to the young who came to Madrid "sponsored" by his roommates. He knew this because a friend had given her Spanish classes. "It was like children," said the girl. It was also the youngest of three brothers in their real family, which was eliminated in San Diego (California) for six weeks to study one semester of Economics and Business Administration at the University Carlos III. The youth studied Spanish since high school and her roommate as "only had a slight accent but he understood perfectly." "We had breakfast together at home and then he went to class from 11.00 to 13.00." Costa was routine and the young. "He was very disciplined, always preparing the tupperware and gym bag before going to college," says the roommate.

    Since Austin Taylor Bice disappeared, his five friends - also exchange students, and his roommates have dedicated themselves to go the hospital describing the young man: tall, strong and 1.95 meters (100 kilos). No documentation had been over, but their credit cards. We also have papered the city center with your photo, have created a facebook group and have asked the last people who saw it. "The doormen of the club was recognized," said Costa. "Fortunately we were told that they saw him go into a Burger King and not to the Casa de Campo" he says.

    The complaint about his disappearance is on Saturday 26 February, but even after 48 hours the police was not investigating, as is usual in these cases. Both the U.S. embassy in Madrid, such as universities (the host in Madrid and San Diego State University) are already aware of the situation in the U.S.. The Police Headquarters confirmed today that there is an open investigation which is being undertaken by the Missing Persons Group. "He lost track on Friday night," a spokesman has said.

    Here is a map of where Austin was last seen. Can anyone find where he was staying while in Madrid?

    Hope they find him! Seems like whenever a male student goes missing, alcohol is involved

    One important correction to the google translate - I would translate that last bit as he was walking TOWARDS the burguer king, definitely not "going into". Looking on the map, the BK is less than a block north of the nightclub, so he he left the night club walking north, towards BK but away from his campus.

    I'm not sure where he lived, but one of his friends said the club was a 30 minute walk from where he lived. Not sure which direction. I'd assume close to the university.
