Ann Arbor police continue to ask the community for any information as they search for Brice Moss, the former University of Michigan student reported missing on Saturday.

"There have been several tips received," said Lt. Renee Bush.

So far, she said, detectives said none of them have resulted in a credible lead that gets officials closer to finding Moss and reuniting him with his family.

Among the pending tips is a possible sighting near North Campus on May 1, according to a report in the Michigan Daily.

Moss was last seen at 2:40 a.m. Saturday, the day his parents arrived for U-M's graduation. They didn't see him that day, and they learned that he'd no longer been attending the university.

Anyone with information on Moss’ whereabouts is encouraged to call the Ann Arbor police anonymous tip line at 734-794-6939 or 911 if in the city of Ann Arbor.

Let's hope he's okay and just embarrassed about not graduating and doesn't know how to deal with it knowing the disappointment of his parents.

If a "tip" doesn't become an instant lead, it really isn't a tip, is it? Would it be better to just say "several phone calls (or emails) were received"...???????

Hey Dude: come on home. You CAN get through this and go on to better times. You can only run IN the race, not away from it.

Brice, if you're alright, just go home! Your mother must be just sick with worry! I really hope he is OK.

I'm reminded of a Taiwanese student who came to UM in the late '50s, felt disgraced by failing grades, and disappeared, leaving apparent clues of a suicide on a bridge over the Huron River. He was discovered four years later in a church attic, where he'd survived by raiding the pantry at night. He went on to graduate.

This has been said before and doesn't help.
