ASU student missing

An ASU student has been missing since April 21.

Daniel Heidlinger, 22, an economics undergraduate in the W.P. Carey School of Business, left his home between 5 and 6 p.m. His driver’s license and passport were not found at his house.

“”There are no signs of foul play at this time. However, Tempe Police detectives are trying to locate Daniel to check welfare,”” said Sgt. Steve Carbajal of the Tempe Police Department in a press release on Tuesday.

Heidlinger is the former president of the Sigma Chi fraternity on ASU’s campus.

“”We have been sending out flyers and doing things on the Internet and Facebook, reaching out that way as well as being members of that (Facebook group), making phone calls,”” said Todd Chase, president of the Sigma House Corporation, who graduated from ASU in 1989. “”Everything that can be done is being done.””

Members of the UA Sigma Chi chapter have been offering their help as well.

“”We have sent our chapter advisor; he has gone up there and we plan on going up there this weekend to help them out … and seeing if they need anything,”” said Michael B. Colletti, UA Sigma Chi recruitment chair and public relations officer for the Interfraternity Council. “”Just to be there would be good support.””

He was last seen boarding a westbound light rail train toward Phoenix wearing a dark sweatshirt and light colored shorts, according to Carbajal.

The Facebook site dedicated to finding Heidlinger says he was last seen “”wearing a gray tee shirt and light blue jeans.””

There were 10,638 members of the Facebook group as of press time. Most of the posts urged others to put up flyers, asked questions to narrow down the search and offered words of support for the Heidlinger family.
