Search Continues For Missing Geneva College Student

BEAVER FALLS (KDKA) — Relatives of a missing Geneva College student are in Beaver County, searching for clues as to their loved one’s whereabouts.

Devon Minor, 18, of suburban Philadelphia, hasn’t been seen since late last Wednesday night, when someone saw him in a school cafeteria eating French fries.

Minor is a freshman, majoring in engineering. His roommates became worried and reported his absence to school officials late last week. He vanished, leaving his cell phone, computer, iPod and jacket in his room.

College Provost Dr. Ken Carson said the school is “incredibly concerned” about this situation.

“We are praying for [Devon’s] safety, and our hope is that he will soon found to be safe,” he added.

Minor’s aunt, Gail Barlow, said she raised Devon.

“We’re scared to death, this is very uncharacteristic,” she said. “He’s a loner, so we’re used to him wanting to be alone, but not to this magnitude.”

    Immediate concern is something happened in his room. I have a feeling several know where he is. Someone better come forward before it’s too late! I’m sure the police are getting close… God Bless the Family.

    Many Prayers,
    A Concerned Parent of 3

      You might say “you HOPE” but you have no clue to make such a comment…
      very IRRESPONSIBLE…the only thing responsible you said was “God Bless the Family….and Many Prayers.”

        We’re all praying. That is key. I want to clear up that I’m not a police officer but a concerned parent of 3. I want Devon to come home. I did try to revoke my message being it did offend you in some way. I never said hope or name called you as you’ve done to me.

        God Bless Devon, His Family, Friends and Geneva College. We’re pulling for you with lots of prayers all over!
