Search underway for missing BU student

NEW YORK (WHDH) - A local college student has gone missing.

Boston University student, Zachery Camhi, was last seen around 5 a.m. at the W Hotel on the East Side of Manhattan on September 18.

The 25-year-old’s friends and family have been desperately looking for him.

Camhi was in the city with a friend to pick up his instrument from fellow double musician, Lizzy Burns, when he took off.

His friends took to social media with a flyer and believe they have a lead.

Camhi’s friends have been spearheading the search effort, as his family in Indiana has been strapped with medical expense and can’t make it to New York.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
