Missing Cornell student found dead in creek

A Cornell student who had been missing for over two days has been found dead in a creek just outside of the Ithaca, New York, campus.

According to ABC News, Aalaap Narasipura, 20, was recovered from Fall Creek Friday morning. He had been last seen in a campus building in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Police have not commented on the cause of death, but told ABC News they do not suspect foul play.

According to The Cornell Daily Sun, Narasipura was an undergraduate electrical engineering student at the College of Engineering. He was expected to continue on for a Masters of Engineering Degree after an early graduation in December.

“On behalf of the Cornell University community, I extend our deepest condolences to Aalaap’s family and friends as they grieve this tragedy,” Vice President for Student and Campus Life Ryan Lombardi said in a statement. “They are in our thoughts as we all come to grips with the enormity of this loss.”
