MIT doctoral student reported missing in India

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A Rhode Island couple is in India trying to find their 28-year-old daughter, who went missing a week ago during one of her regular morning runs.

Providence native and Brown University graduate Kate Goldstein hasn’t been seen since she went out for a jog by herself around June 15.

Her brother, Adam Goldstein, told WPRI-TV that their parents are in India looking for her. He says she went to India for the summer to help install solar panels in the remote village of Phey with an educational and cultural organization.


Adam Goldstein says he’s worried because of highly publicized gang rapes in India, but he’s hopeful she’ll be found safe.

He says his sister lives in Boston and is working on a doctorate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
