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.

    Washington (CNN) — An FBI employee shared confidential information with his girlfriend, who was a news reporter, then later threatened to release a sex tape the two had made.

    A supervisor watched pornographic videos in his office during work hours while “satisfying himself.”

    And an employee in a “leadership position” misused a government database to check on two friends who were exotic dancers and allowed them into an FBI office after hours.

    These are among confidential summaries of FBI disciplinary reports obtained by CNN, which describe misconduct by agency supervisors, agents and other employees over the last three years

    BUFFALO, NY – A Special Agent working in the Buffalo office of the FBI is due in Eden Town Court later this month, after being arrested by New York State Police last Friday night, charged with exposing himself to a fellow motorist on the New York State Thruway.

    State Police Lt. David Denz confirmed for WGRZ-TV that John A. Yervelli Jr., 48, of Lakeview, was charged with Public Lewdness, a class B misdemeanor, punishable by up to 90 days in jail.

    According to Denz, a truck driver from central New York was traveling in the right lane while east bound on the Thruway near mile marker 442, between Exits 57 and 57A, when he noticed a grey minivan pull alongside him in the passing lane.

    The trucker told police that when he looked down, he noticed the driver of the other vehicle (who had turned his dome light on) was not wearing pants.

  5. msfreeh, the FBI are not involved in the case in the way you suggest. They are involved in assisting to locate the missing student. Your posts are humorous, if a bit paranoid, but they are also counterproductive.

  6. If only they found this terrorist POS sooner =/

  7. Did the FBI get involved because they knew he was a violent monster perhaps?

  8. I wasn’t even aware of this missing kid because I don’t watch TV and only listen to public radio and read Brit rags on the ‘net. So I only learned of it in the Boston Bombers special page…

    How fucking horrible for that family! Maybe we can help them find their son instead of grandstanding each other in other threads.
