College issues statement on missing student

A Middlebury College student has been missing since Feb. 5. College officials said Nicholas Garza, age 19, is a first-year student and a resident of Albuquerque, N.M. Officials said Garza was on campus during the college's winter break and did not go home. He was last observed in Allen Hall and apparently left the building without a top coat. The Garza family has been notified of the students disappearance. Ronald D. Liebowitz, president of Middlebury College, released a public statement about the missing student Feb. 14 Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Nicholas Garza, a first-year student at Middlebury College who has been missing since Tuesday, Feb. 5. An exhaustive search of the Middlebury campus... has so far turned up no sign of Nick... We urge anyone with relevant information to contact the Middlebury Police (802-388-3191) or campus public safety (802-443-5911)... As we continue to hope for Nicks safe return, we want our students to know that all of the Colleges support services and staff are available to help in this difficult time, including Commons deans and their residential staffs, counseling and health center staff, chaplains, and other advisors. Police suspended their campus and off-campus search for Garza during the Feb. 13 storm. The search resumes Feb. 16.
