“On-site staff from Trinity are working actively with the Italian authorities to determine the circumstances surrounding his disappearance,” Bates College said in a statement posted on its website.

“We’re very concerned, of course. We certainly don’t want a student of ours to be missing,” said Meg Kimmel, associate vice president for communications at Bates.
