Authorities, family, and friends are searching for a 22-year-old Brown University student. Sunil Tripathi was last seen Saturday morning on Brown campus on the East Side of Providence at around 11:00 am. He was wearing a pair of blue jeans, a black Eastern Mountain Sports ski jacket, glasses, and a Philadelphia Eagles wool hat. He is six feet tall and weighs 130 pounds.

Family and friends are working with the Providence Police and the Brown University Department of Pubic Safety to find Sunil. The FBI has joined the greater Providence community to assist in the investigation. We are focusing on the greater Providence area, where flyers have been posted and media has dedicated extensive press coverage. The search is expanding outside of Providence to Boston, Connecticut, New York, and Philadelphia. Family and friends are grateful to all those assisting in this search for Sunil.

Momentum in the search is growing. Former and current classmates, friends, extended family, the loving Brown community and the larger Providence community and law enforcement all continue to mobilize. Please join us and spread the word, post flyers, and look for updates on a public Facebook page, “Help Us Find Sunil Tripathi.” In the past 24 hours, more than 30,000 have joined us to view or repost these search pages.

Sunil grew up in Radnor, Pennsylvania and has been living in Providence since 2008. He is a talented musician, a saxophonist, a philosophy major, a critical thinker, and a kind quiet son and brother. We miss his warm smile and generous gentle spirit so very much. Your help and prayers to find him mean so much.
