South Africa - Nicholas Upton, 19, GWU student, Cape Town, 30 Aug 2015
Missing GW Student Last Seen Swimming in South Africa
"A student from George Washington University has disappeared while studying abroad in South Africa this past weekend, the school confirmed.
Nicholas Upton, 19, is a junior at the school and is currently studying at a partner program in Cape Town. He has not been seen since he went swimming in the Eastern Cape Province on Sunday evening local time, GW University Dean of Student Affairs Peter Konwerski said in a statement.
He and a group of other students studying abroad traveled to a surf lodge on the other side of the country and the National Sea Rescue Institute, the country's equivalent to a coast guard, issued a statement saying that "he is presumed to have drowned."

It appears six students from a group of 11 were on a spring vacation and went to swim at about 11 p.m. on Sunday near a lodge where they were staying

It was cold and rainy Sunday, why on earth would he go swimming/surfing at 11pm? It would have been very dark as well.
