AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - An Auburn University veterinary student has
vanished during a sightseeing trip to Thailand, and officials from the Alabama school are in Tokyo trying to find him.
University officials say 29-year-old Michael Griffin Harrie was last seen July 14 in Bangkok. He left for the trip July 7 from Japan, where he was participating in a study abroad program at Iwate University in Morioka. He was supposed to meet his parents in Tokyo July 16, but never arrived.
That's when he was reported missing.
Auburn officials are in Tokyo to help Harrie's family find him, and his parents are asking the public for any information.
