Auburn police searching for missing AU student from Taiwan

AUBURN, Ala. (WTVM) - Nearly two weeks after an Auburn University graduate student was reported missing, Auburn police are releasing a surveillance photo from the last time he was seen.

21-year-old Chih-Kai Lai was reported missing on Aug. 19, but last communicated with a family member on Aug. 17.

Police say Lai arrived in the U.S. just a few weeks prior to his disappearance to attend graduate school.

Police believe Lai left of his own accord. They say they have no reason to believe that foul play is involved at this point in their investigation.

Lai can be seen in a surveillance photo taken near his apartment in the 300 block of East Magnolia Ave. wearing black warm-up pants with white stripes, running shoes, a t-shirt and glasses.

He stands 5′6″ tall and weighs approximately 170 pounds.

Anyone with information on Lai’s whereabouts is asked to contact Auburn police at (334) 501-3140.
