    SIU in Carbondale is a party school. So that is worrisome off the bat for me.

    Booo!!! Where's the 'I am not a Nugget!' avatar?!?!? I'm going on strike!

    But as far as the case is concerned, I knew a gal that went to school there and it is a party school for sure. I just hope this isn't one of those cases where the kid gets so wasted, then passes out somewhere outside and then is discovered later in a ditch or something. Do we know what the weather was like in the area when he went missing??

    Wow. These are VERY interesting little NUGGETS of info. Those tweets are not good at all. I also wonder about the "Fear God" shirt. Not that it will necessarily make a difference, but I wonder if he is a Christian. I wonder only because it could possible give a clue as to the way he lives his life possibly?? I don't know....hmm.

    What does that actually mean? Obviously I get the gist, but are there more drugs/drinking that would go on in other schools? Is that a reason that people would choose to go there, do you think?

    In short, yes. When magazines/publications rank colleges for their "party school" status, SIU lands the list. I think one year it was #17 in the country from a playboy magazine poll. Sorry I don't have a link but if you google it I bet it'll pop up. (I'm about to run out the door.) :seeya:

    I am about five hours North of him. I just wanted to add that the windchill has been pretty bad here. Depending where he was, you could knock anywhere from 10-20 degrees off of the temp. Maybe even more.

    Good point. I'm 6ish hours north and I can confirm. This winter has been brutal. Lots of wind advisories. School closings, etc due to unsafe wind chills.

    Does anyone else think it's interesting that the police have been so quick to respond? It's a good thing, obviously. But there seems to be genuine concern, not that he's crashed round a mate's after a heavy night.

    I wonder if that is due to the 'bloody knuckles' referred to on his Twitter, and that there is an incident that they are aware of that may have made him vulnerable.

    He has lots of different social media profiles, I'm on my phone which doesn't allow me to copy and paste. Instagram is pravinv.

    He's a lovely looking young man, hope he is safe.

    There is now a Facebook missing page set up by his brother, again am really sorry I can't link to it but it's a very active page with lots of info. Searching for his name brings it straight up.

    I haven't had a chance to sit down and look at a map, but are there any bodies of water nearby? It seems to be the case that a lot of these college aged males that go missing, after a night of heavy drinking, inevitably end up in a nearby body water. Especially in the midwest. :( I hope that isn't the case here. I hope he's just crashed at a buddy's house and doesn't know he's considered missing.

    A comment in the Facebook missing page states that the bloody knuckles were due to a window closing on them and that there was no known altercation.

    I'll flag this myself to the mods as not sure if I'm ok to post this.
