Students said they’re concerned after hearing about the incident.
“I received the email from extremal relations and it was astonishing. It wasn’t something I was expecting, especially during the middle of the day,” said Virginia Dillon.
“It’s pretty serious. It’s definitely worrying,” Brian Dia said.
Based on FIU’s alert, the abductor is described as a man in his mid-30s with black medium length hair and clean shaven. He was driving a white 1999 Jeep Cherokee.
