Lt. Renee Bush said Wednesday morning that investigators are still actively working the case.

“Everyone’s truly concerned,” she said. “We wish he would reach out and tell someone he’s OK.”

Moss was reported missing by his mother after he failed to show up for graduation Saturday morning, according to police. He was last seen at 2:40 a.m. Saturday by one of his roommates and his tan 1999 Lincoln Town Car was last seen at 12:30 a.m. Sunday parked near a friend’s house on Ann Street, according to police.

Moss was enrolled at U-M from the summer of 2008 until April 2011, but has not been a student at the university since then, according to school officials.

Police have asked the community to stay on alert for any possible sightings of Moss. 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.

This makes me wonder ... do we, as parents, put so much pressure on our children that they are afraid to tell us when they are in trouble -- at school or anywhere else?? As a mom of 2 college students, I can't imagine the anguish this mom is going through AND the pain he may be feeling. I pray for his safe return and for their reunion.

As each update comes in, I find myself feeling more and more sympathy for Mr. Moss's mother. But I also worry, under the circumstances, that he may become a danger to himself. I think it's important that this message should reach Mr. Moss: your "failure" is not so great that it cannot be overcome. Others have faced as much embarrassment and worse - but have gone on to success and regained regard. Heroes are not made because they faced small setbacks or took an easy way out. Heroes are the men and women who face real failure and adversity and go on to hold their heads high. You shall overcome.

Nothing is so terrible that it's not possible to face your mother - nothing. Hope he can relieve her suffering and just call her - or someone he is with can do so, assuming he is simply being incommunicado. That would be the best outcome.

Well said, Laura. I'll say it again, just call Mom, please ... we worry. I'm still hoping for a good outcome, and Mr. Moss is safe.
