Portland law enforcement is asking for help finding a University of Portland freshman who went missing the evening of Oct. 6.

Owen Klinger, 18, was last seen leaving his residence hall around 7:30 p.m. in a light blue sweatshirt, jeans and a black drawstring backpack.

Klinger has shoulder-length brown hair and brown eyes. He’s 6-foot-1 and weighs 165 pounds.

The university newspaper, The Beacon, reported that Klinger usually returned to his dorm room by 11 p.m. His phone was active at 8:30 p.m. that night at a bus stop near campus.

Owen’s mother told reporters said it’s unusual for her son to go so long without communicating.

Volunteers posted photos of Klinger around North Portland and the university is praying.

Authorities are asking for anyone with information to call 911 immediately.
