A Boston University Student Is Missing in New York City
Police in New York are searching for a 25-year-old Boston University student who went missing in the city more than a week ago.
Zac Camhi, an “award-winning classical musician” and BU graduate student, was last seen on Sunday, September 18, at a hotel in Midtown Manhattan. He was wearing a maroon button-down shirt, khaki pants and black shoes, according to a missing persons poster and description on Facebook from a woman named Lizzie Burns.
A woman named Tiffany Camhi, who identified herself as Camhi’s sister, wrote in a Facebook post on Friday that the man “has no identification, wallet, or phone on him. He also has no medication he desperately needs for his mental health.”
Anyone in the New York area who spots him has been asked to contact police or email [email protected]. There were unconfirmed reports online that a man matching Camhi’s description may have been spotted at Bryant Park on Thursday.
BU spokesman Colin Riley told the Globe that Camhi is missing and said, “We’re very concerned and we’re hoping for a positive outcome.”
He has been identified in news reports as an “accomplished classical double bassist” who was in the city to pick up his instrument.
