BGSU freshman says time away was 'voluntary'

By  | 


Bowling Green State University said in a Facebook statement Tuesday evening that freshman Jacob Bromm is no longer missing. He has been in touch with law enforcement and said his two-week 'absence' is 'voluntary.'

Citing Bromm's privacy concerns, BGSU is not releasing more details on why Jacob left campus and didn't come back.

In a post dated late Sunday evening, December 2nd, Bowling Green State University announced that it is searching for a missing student.

Jacob Bromm is a freshman college student at Bowling Green. He is from Troy, Michigan, and was last heard from on November 20th, before Thanksgiving. The following is from the school's Facebook account:

"He had told his parents that he was not coming home for Thanksgiving. Friends say that Jacob indicated to them that he was leaving Kohl Hall to take an Uber to the airport to fly out west.

BGSU Police are investigating and have reviewed all relevant, available security footage. There is currently no evidence that his absence is not voluntary or that he is in distress. Jacob is 18 and legally an adult."

13abc called the BGSU Police Department and spoke with a man there. He could not provide us with any physical descriptors, such as height, weight, or the clothing Jacob was last seen wearing on November 20th.
