New Jersey authorities and Princeton University public safety officials are utilizing drones, helicopters and watercraft in their search for a 20-year-old rising star student who has not been seen since early Friday morning.
Misrach Ewunetie, a 20-year-old from the Cleveland, Ohio area, has been missing since around 3 am Friday, when she was spotted in the area of the Scully Hall dormitory on Princeton University’s campus, the Princeton, New Jersey, Police Department said in a press release.
Ewunetie was described as being 5 feet, 4 inches tall and about 130 pounds with brown eyes and black hair.

A LinkedIn profile that appeared to belong to the missing woman paints the picture of a rising star who spent two summers as a business analyst for McKinsey & Company in Ohio. She attended Villa Angela-St. Joseph High School in Cleveland and received a full scholarship to the prestigious Ivy League school, the high school proudly announced in 2020.
Ewunetie also attended an eight-week summer program at Stanford University, her LinkedIn shows, and held an internship with Bank of America the summer before her freshman year.
There was no update regarding the search for Ewunetie as of 10:15 am Wednesday, when the university warned students of “an increased law enforcement presence on and around campus including the use of a helicopter, drones and watercraft.”
According to The Daily Princetonian, students received a notification just before 9:20 pm Monday describing how Ewunetie was reported missing and had last been seen near the residence hall where she lived.

Anne Caswell-Klein, dean of the university’s New College West, where Ewunetie was a student, wrote in an email to the community that Ewunetie had “not been in touch with her family or friends in several days,” the school newspaper reported.
Equnetie’s brother, Universe Ewunetie, told The US Sun he is experiencing “a nightmare that I cannot wake up from.”
Universe said his sister was scheduled to have an appointment on Saturday regarding her American citizen, but never showed up, the report states.
He reportedly added that Misrach, one of three kids, had enabled software that allowed her brother to be able to see her cell phone’s location. Just Sunday morning, the phone appeared to have been located at a nearby residential complex, he told the site.

“That’s the last place her phone pinged,” the concerned brother reportedly said. “It’s very unlike her to turn off her phone, kids these days don’t turn off their phones, they love their phones.”
A police and K9 search proved unsuccessful, Universe reportedly said, and police were unable to secure a warrant.
Universe said his sister had met with members of a club with members of the university’s Terrace Club, an eating and social events club known to host live music performances, on the Thursday night before she disappeared.
A post on the club’s Facebook account indicates there was a show scheduled for 11 pm Thursday night.
Police are urging anyone with information regarding Ewunetie’s whereabouts to contact the Department of Public Safety at (609) 258-1000.
