PRINCETON, N.J. (WHDH) — Princeton University is seeking the public’s help in finding a 20-year-old student who’s been missing for nearly a week.

Misrach Ewunetie, an undergraduate student at the New Jersey school, was last seen on campus early Friday morning. “She is 5 feet, 4 inches tall and weighs 130 pounds. She has brown eyes, black hair and light brown complexion,” the university said in a tweet Monday.

Authorities provided new details after Ewunetie’s brother said her cell phone pinged near a housing complex off-campus Sunday, just two days after she was last seen outside her dorm. Authorities said they hope they can use cell phone data to trace her steps.

This comes as police officers and firefighters were spotted searching a lake near the New Jersey campus Wednesday morning.

The school is urging anyone with information about her disappearance to contact the university’s public safety department at 609-258-1000 or submit an anonymous tip.
