FBI Joins Search For Geneva College Student

By Ralph Iannotti

BEAVER FALLS (KDKA) — The Pittsburgh office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation says it’s providing one of its agents to assist in the investigation into the disappearance of missing Geneva College student Devon Minor.

The 18-year old college freshman from suburban Philadelphia was last seen last Wednesday night in a college dining hall.

Police told Devon’s aunt on Tuesday that another search of Minor’s dormitory room turned up his wallet. Earlier, officials had said that the teenager’s iPod, cell phone and jacket were found in his room after he was reported missing to school officials by his roommates.

Minor’s aunt, Gail Barlow, who has raised him since childhood after his mother died, told KDKA-TV that she is more concerned than ever with the latest find.

“Now, we’re left with the fact that he [Devon] doesn’t even have identification on him,” she said. “Devon is a good soul, a good man, we just want him home.”

“We just want to know that he’s OK,” Devon’s cousin, Amber Howard, said. “I would love to hug him and tell him that.”

    Why did this take so long to get to the news? Hopefully, this wasn’t pre-empted by the Steelers game build-up hype.. If he went missing Thursday, it wasn’t in the news until Monday. Did no one at the school notify the media? This search took to long to start. God bless the family while they wait for info. And may it have a happy ending.

      Considering that he’s 18 years old, and that he’s basically on his own at college, I imagine that the police wanted to wait until they were sure that he was actually missing, and had not just taken off on his own for a day or two.

    Prayers, prayers and more prayers please, let him be found alive.
