Search still on for missing St. Thomas student

Students and police are still searching for a missing St. Thomas student, the Pioneer Press reported.

Daniel Zamlen, 18, a freshman at St. Thomas University in St. Paul and native of Eveleth, Minn., went missing Sunday after leaving a party.

Police are searching the area around St. Clair Avenue and Mississippi River Boulevard, where Zamlen was last heard from.

The Star Tribune reported that Zamlen was spoken to on Sunday morning around 2:30a.m. by friends via cell phone.

Zamlen was drinking at a party prior to his disappearance. He has Type I diabetes and was not supposed to be drinking. (Star Tribune)

Police have not yet searched the Mississippi River due to the water's height and fast current. They say they will go in if they pinpoint a spot to search. (Pioneer Press)

Zamlen apparently left the party on St. Clair Avenue after becoming upset. Friends have not revealed why he was upset yet.

People searching on foot and a helicopter carrying a heat-seeking device have not produced any clues to Zamlen's whereabouts. (Star Tribune)
