    Police will only say they are investigating. Ambrose Monye's classmates say he's a quiet and helpful guy who moves predictably between his Hyde Park apartment, the gym and the hospital. They got worried when they did not hear from him by Saturday. They went to his apartment and found nothing unusual -- there were even fresh groceries in the fridge.

    It sounds like foul play is what happened to him. I'm not getting a "run off" vibe. I do hope they do find him. I'm sure hope I'm wrong.

    My first thought was "Hope he didn't harm himself" sadly. Hope I'm so wrong.

    Chicago police have no evidence pointing to anything criminal, but are continuing to investigate.

    His credit cards, everything stopped Thursday. The air conditioner and a fan was on in his apartment in the 5500 block of South Everett Avenue. The refrigerator was full of groceries he’d recently purchased.

    Ambrose was not depressed and one of the last times he spoke to his brother, Ambrose was the one trying to make him feel better.

    One of Ambrose’s acquaintances said that on April 22, the day after the brothers last talked, he saw Ambrose walking towards the library and greeted him but Ambrose didn’t respond. “My brother just walked on.’’, said Ambrose's brother. The friend said Ambrrose “looked a little bit upset, or angry.’’.

    The last thing I would do if I was losing it would be grocery shopping. I wonder if he got some bad news? He likely already knows what internship/residency placement he is heading to at the end of June. Did something happen with his placement?
    He is so close to receiving his MD degree! I just have a bad, foul-play feeling.

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.

    This one is really creeping me out. I get the foul play vibes too - but, depression and suicidal tendencies can really be hidden, especially when you probably have some amount of exposure to the behaviors you're supposed to be hiding

    If the acquaintance's recollection of this sighting of Ambrose is accurate, this last sighting could be an important clue. What caused Ambrose to be upset or angry, and presumably so preoccupied he didn't hear his friend's greeting?

    I wonder if Ambrose had his cell phone on his person. Can the phone be pinged to determine its location?

    I hope there is some good cctv footage that can shed some light on his movements

    No new info. In the video, Ambrose's brother and sister speak.

    Ambrose's FB page: https://www.facebook.com/mon.ambrosio

    One thing that caught my attention is that (and I can only speak of posts that are for public viewing) Ambrose posted two photos on April 20th, the day before he and his brother last spoke (and also the day on which he was last confirmed to have been seen, though "acquaintances" reportedly saw him on the 22nd); prior to that, his last public post was on December 20, 2014. It could be a coincidence, but my hunch is that it isn't ....
