Vietnamese post-graduate reported missing in US
The news that Vietnamese national Nguyen Quoc Thinh, an architectural doctorate student at the Illinois Institute of Technology, has gone missing has raised concern in Vietnam and the US.
According to a Vietnam News Agency correspondent, after being informed that Thinh was missing, the Vietnamese Embassy to the US sent diplomatic notes to relevant local agencies asking for their assistance in searching for Thinh.
Born in 1976 in northern Nam Dinh province, Thinh moved to Ho Chi Minh City and received a Government scholarship to study at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago for a doctorate in architecture. His academic results have always been excellent in all subjects.
US policemen have searched local areas and have released missing person notices but Thinh’s whereabouts remain unknown.
The Vietnamese Embassy to the US is in touch with Illinois police and relevant agencies to continue the search.
