23-yr-old university drop-out disappears on graduation, told parents he was graduating
Jon S. Steindorf, a 23-year-old Penn State University drop-out, told his parents he was graduating but disappeared from his apartment on the day of the supposed graduation and had not been seen since.
Jon S. Steindorf left his house, leaving behind his phone, credit cards and all forms of identification, on the day his parents believed he would graduate from the university.
His parents arrived at his Pugh Street apartment at 4 p.m., hoping to attend his graduation, only to learn that he had dropped out.
Steindorf has not been since he disappeared on the 8th and the last person to see him was his roommate, around 11:30 a.m. on Friday.
His father, Paul Steindorf, told Centre Daily Times on Sunday that they thought he had graduated.
“We thought he’d graduate, and that was our understanding that he completed fall classes and he delayed graduation until now, but the most recent information we received was he was not on the list to graduate,” he said.
“Apparently he wasn’t enrolled this fall.”
With their son now also missing, the Steindorf are more concerned about seeing their son again.
“We love him and want him to come home to us,” Paul Steindorf said.
“That’s all that matters to us is that he’s safe at home.”
Described as 5 feet 10 inches, weighing 170 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes, Steindorf is believed to have left his house with a black specialized bicycle and carrying a black backpack.
State College police say they have nothing yet on his whereabouts.
“We have had calls and checked those out,” Lt. Bradley Smail said on Sunday afternoon.
"As of this point, nothing."
There is an online effort to help find him.
