Misrach Ewunetie Bio – Misrach Ewunetie Wiki
Misrach Ewunetie, a Princeton University student from Ohio who went missing near campus roughly a week ago, was found dead Thursday, Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo Onofri said.
Misrach Ewunetie was 20 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
It’s been five days since Misrach Ewunetie, a junior at Princeton University, went missing, prompting university officials to intensify their search.
Ewunetie was last seen around 3 a.m. near a residential building on the New Jersey campus, according to the university.
“As part of the continuing efforts to locate missing undergraduate student Misrach Ewunetie ’24, there is an increased law enforcement presence on and around campus today including the use of a helicopter, drones and watercraft,” the university said in an update to the community Wednesday morning.
The university urges anyone with information pertinent to the search to contact the Department of Public Safety.
Officials said Ewunetie has black hair, brown eyes, and a light brown complexion. She is 5 feet, 4 inches tall, and weighs about 130 pounds.
Ewunetie was volunteering at one of the school’s 11 eating clubs on Thursday night, the president of the club told the student newspaper, The Daily Princetonian. Terrace Club student leaders told the paper that Ewunetie was on “duty” doing housekeeping work during a live music performance at the club.
“On Thursday night, one of our members who was initially signed up for duty was unable to attend our event, and Misrach volunteered to cover their shift. After the club had closed and all of the duty responsibilities had been fulfilled, Misrach – as well as the other members on duty – left for the night,” Maravcsik wrote to the paper.
Sara Elagad, executive director of the non-profit Minds Matter Cleveland, told CNN that Ewunetie’s disappearance was unusual. Ewunetie was a 2020 Minds Matter Cleveland program graduate, which looks to close the education gap between high-achieving, low-income students.
“It is not at all in character for her to purposely go off the radar or be out of touch with family,” Elagad said. “We are supporting her family as they assist law enforcement efforts to safely locate her.”
Ewunetie was a graduate of the Villa Angela-St. According to a statement from the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland, Joseph High School.
In an email to students, W. Rochelle Calhoun, Princeton’s vice president for campus life, said Ewunetie’s family contacted the school Sunday night to request a well-being check after not hearing from her for several days.
“Since Sunday, DPS has been actively working with the Prosecutor’s Office and with state and local police departments to follow all leads in the search for Misrach,” Calhoun said in the email.
