Twin Cities U of M Student Missing
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Authorities are searching for a University of Minnesota student who went missing after visiting a bar near the school's campus.
Minneapolis police say 22-year-old Jennifer Houle was last seen around 1 a.m. Friday at Blarney Pub and Grill in the Dinkytown neighborhood. Police say her purse was found at 3 a.m. about three blocks west of the bar.
Houle is described as 5 feet 5 inches tall with long blonde hair and blue eyes. She was wearing a black leather jacket, green blouse, black leggings and boots.
Nearly 300 of Houle's friends and family members attended a vigil Sunday evening outside Stillwater Area High School, where she graduated before studying at the university's Carlson School of Management.
The university is offering counseling services to students and employees concerned over Houle's disappearance.
