    Hundreds of people were expected to join a search Sunday in Virginia for a British college exchange student who disappeared 12 days ago, The Times of London reported.

    Jonathan Dorey, a 22-year-old geography student from the University of the West of England, was last seen leaving the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) campus in the city of Richmond at around 11 a.m. ET on March 2.

    He had his mountain bike, a backpack and his mobile phone with him.

    His worried friends have spread the word of his disappearance with a Facebook group which now has nearly 19,000 members.

    Bob Beebe, a friend of Dorey’s family who is acting as their spokesman, said that the latest search attempt would focus on a rural area near the VCU campus.

    “There’s a very large group of people gathering around the Belle Isle area, which was the last known message link to Jonny’s phone,” he said.

    “It’s a beautiful rural setting, very popular with mountain bikers and walkers. He may have gone off on a mountain bike trail, had an accident and injured himself. If he’s lying there we want to find him.”

    Police said that there was no evidence of foul play. Detectives have been collecting electronic information in a bid to piece together his last movements.

    Beebe said it was hoped that these clues, along with help from people in the local area, would help the search team to retrace Dorey’s steps and follow his planned movements.

    “Someone somewhere must have seen Jonny Dorey that Tuesday,” he said.

    I hope I'm wrong, but IMO this is not going to be a good outcome.

    I wish we had more information or something to go on. They said they are searching the Belle Isle area where some people ride bikes.
    He is a tall guy and I would think he could take care of himself in a bad situation. I hope :(

    my question is... was it travel involving his bike? Or did he ride his bike somewhere and park it? Also... there hasn't been any phone or credit card activity.... I hope the lead pans out and he comes home safely

    I do as well nurse. Why wouldn't anyone, friends or family (even thought they are overseas) know he was traveling? It's strange.
    I am hopeful for his return but until then my thoughts are with him.
