PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Brown University says the search for a missing student who was last seen on campus a week ago is now expanding outside Providence to Boston, Connecticut, New York and Philadelphia.

Sunil Tripathi is a philosophy major at Brown who grew up on Bryn Mawr, Penn. He has been living in Providence since 2008. He was on approved leave from the Ivy League school.

Brown spokeswoman Darlene Trew Crist says in a statement released Saturday that Providence and Brown police departments are leading the missing person investigation.

The search for Tripathi focused on the greater Providence area over the last six days, including distribution of flyers, physically searching various neighborhoods and soliciting for information through social media sites.

Tripathi is six feet tall and was last seen wearing blue jeans, a black ski jacket, glasses and a wool hat.
