Missing University of Chicago student safely reunited with family, two months after they posted $10,000 reward to find him
Diwen Fan, 20, was last seen leaving his university dorm room on May 5. His family offered the reward a month later.
A University of Chicago student reported missing has been safely reunited with family, two months after they had offered a $10,000 reward to find him, school officials announced last week.
Diwen Fan, 20, was last seen leaving his university dorm room on May 5, according to the family’s lawyer, Yilun Hu. The family posted the reward in June.
In an email to the school community on Friday, Dean of Students John Ellison announced Fan has been reunited with his family.
“He and his family visited campus today to show their gratitude to the entire university community,” Ellison wrote. “The university will continue to support Diwen and his family moving forward.”
Officials have not provided any details on Fan’s disappearance.
The family’s lawyer said there was an indication Fan had an “unsatisfactory academic record,” and his parents released a statement telling the college sophomore not to be frustrated by things out of his control.
