BLACKSBURG, Va., April 4, 2006 -- Virginia Tech Police have declared a student missing.

University officials seek assistance in locating the whereabouts of Christopher Andrew Bell, height 5’7”, male Caucasian, weight 140 pounds, hazel eyes, and brown hair.

He was last seen by his roommate about 1 a.m. Monday. Bell is a member in the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets and was not present for morning muster on Monday or Tuesday. Because he has missed two musters and because his parents asked the university police to issue a missing persons report, the university asks for assistance from the public if they may have seen Bell or know his whereabouts. Please contact Virginia Tech Police, 540-231-6411.

Bell is a freshman in the College of Engineering from Williamsburg, Va.
