The FBI has joined the search for Sunil Tripathi, a former member of the class of 2012 who went missing Saturday morning.
An agent met with family members Thursday night to discuss the case and move forward in conjunction with the Providence Police Department and the Department of Public Safety, Tripathi’s mother Judy Tripathi said.
Law enforcement officials told the family that “the more eyes (search for Tripathi,) the better,” she said.
Police officers are “looking for Sunil alive,” she said. “Law enforcement are saying to us there is every chance he is still with us.”
Friends and family members encouraged anyone with information regarding Tripathi’s disappearance to contact Providence Detective Mark Sacco at (401) 641-8691 or the FBI.
