ECU Graduate Missing In Raleigh

A recent East Carolina University graduate is the subject of a search in Wake County.

Authorities say 23-year-old Weston Vandemerwe was last seen at a downtown Raleigh bar around 1:30 a.m. Saturday.

Raleigh police say right now Vandemerwe is just a missing person and that no foul play is suspected.

But his mother says for him to simply disappear is not like him. "He would never not call his friends, or me, not come home or...he was supposed to sign a lease on a house yesterday," said Rebecca Daly. "He's very responsible really wonderful kid, dresses preppy, just a really, really good kid."

Vandemerwe was wearing a red short sleeve polo with blue shorts and Sperry shoes.

His family believes he was walking home to Apex when he disappeared.

ECU says Vandemerwe graduated last December with a degree in finance.
