GW student missing after swimming in South Africa
WASHINGTON (AP) — A George Washington University official says an undergraduate student has been missing since swimming while traveling in South Africa.
Vice Provost and Dean of Student Affairs Peter Konwerski said in a statement Monday that junior Nicholas Upton from Redding, Connecticut has not been seen since swimming in the East Cape Province on Sunday at about 10:30 p.m. local time.
Konwerski says authorities in Cape Town are searching for Upton and coordinating with the man's family, study abroad program representatives and the U.S. Embassy.
Upton has been studying abroad in South Africa and was traveling during a break from classes.
Upton is a member of the Kappa Alpha Order fraternity and the university's rowing team.
