On May 8, Joanne and Paul Steindorf arrived at their son's apartment in central Pennsylvania under the impression they'd accompany the 23-year-old student to his college graduation.
But their son, Jon Steindorf, was nowhere to be found.
According to New York Daily News, Jon left his apartment around 11:30 that morning, leaving behind his wallet, cell phone, keys and money.
He has yet to return home.
The student, who secretly dropped out of school last fall, is reported to be last seen by his roommate who claims Jon was carrying a red backpack and riding a black bicycle.
The State College police investigating Jon's disappearance have “had calls and checked [them] out,” according to Lt. Bradley Smail, but “as of this point, nothing [has been found].”
The authorities released a missing persons report, describing Jon as a 5'10”, 170-pound, blue-eyed male.
Additionally, friends and family members posted their own missing persons reports on Facebook in desperate attempts to find Jon safe and healthy.
In a post on Facebook, his mother reportedly wrote,
She added his secret withdrawal from the school “does not matter,” and ended the note with a direct plea to her son, writing,
If you have any information that may help in locating Jon Steindorf, contact the State College Police Department at 814-234-7150. We send our best wishes to the family during this difficult time.
