Bruce Springsteen Joins Search for Missing Student
Boston College student Franco Garcia has been missing for a little over a week, and rock legend Bruce Springsteen wants to find him.
The singer posted the official “Missing” poster on his Facebook page and sent a tweet to his followers on Wednesday in an effort to bring the 21-year-old home safely, writing, “Help find missing Boston College student Franco Garcia.”
Garcia was last seen around midnight on Feb. 22 wearing a long-sleeved white and blue striped shirt and jeans at Mary Ann’s Bar in Brighton, Mass. Police have reportedly searched the Chestnut Hill Reservoir and Garcia’s home but have turned up nothing.
“It remains a missing persons case,” Massachusetts State Police spokesperson David Procopio said. “There is no evidence to indicate foul play, but foul play has not been ruled out.”
Springsteen’s connection to the case is personal: his son is also a student at Boston College, where Garcia was a member of the school’s marching and symphonic bands. Anyone with information is encouraged to call 617-796-2104.
