    WA - Tan Nguyen, 20, Bellevue, 11 February 2015

    Tan Nguyen

    Family of missing UW student asks for help
    The family of 20-year old University of Washington student Tan Nguyen says until Wednesday, he was never out of touch with his family, and as dependable as clockwork. They say they’re shocked by the sudden disappearance, and they’re asking for help finding clues to explain it.

    The last time they saw Nguyen—last Wednesday, he was leaving his family’s Bellevue home to take the B-Line Metro Transit but to school. When he didn’t return home that evening, Nguyen’s family searched for him, scanning areas from Bellevue to the UW campus.

    Police in Bellevue and Seattle have issued missing person alerts for Nguyen. On Saturday, Seattle police told Nguyen’s family they found his backpack—with all his school-related belongings, east of the 520 bridge near Montlake. They say the backpack didn’t appear to be missing items, and it yielded no clues as to his whereabouts.

    Nguyen’s family describes Tan as a “straight-A student” who does not socialize much outside of his immediate family. They say there was no sign of depression, or trouble in his life before last week. On the day he disappeared, they found Nguyen’s cellphone in his bedroom, unused .

    the location of his backpack makes one wonder if it was enroute or return from classes....hopefully some of his classmates will speak up

    Not sure which spelling's correct, but KOMO has it as Tam Nguyen.

    Family desperate to find missing UW student

    The family of Tam Nguyen said he was here one minute and gone the next.
    ---
    The tears come quickly for Tam's older sister, Xuan Nguyen.

    "He's the kind of person who doesn't have a lot of friends at all," she said. "I don't know what to do."
    ---
    "He's doesn't go anywhere besides school and the house," she said.

    A passerby later found Tam's backpack and student ID near the Montlake Cut, which is close to the UW campus.
    Am guessing it indeed is Tan, though.

    I watched the embedded video and the reporter interviewed the family. I have a cousin by the same first name. IMO, his name is Tam.

    Here are a couple of screen grabs from the article and video:

    Tan doesn't drive, and his family said he left his cellphone and wallet at home, which he normally did.

    Whether he left his backpack purposefully, or not by choice, it's location is saddening. Maybe that he had no social life caused him to be depressed. People can hide that really well. Really well. And if not by his choice, well that doesn't sound good either.

    SWMNBN! Now we know via the family that his name is Tan. Hopefully, MSM will clarify any previous articles with an Editor's note. This would allow readers to find information on Tan via web searches using either spelling.

    I have liked their page, followed their twitter, and will do whatever I can to help #BringTanHome
