Northwestern University is asking its community to help locate a doctoral student, Peter Salvino, 25, who was reported missing Sunday by his family. University representatives are in contact with Peter’s family and share with his parents and friends their serious concern for his safety and overall well-being.
The Chicago Police Department (CPD) is leading the investigation, and CPD has stated that Salvino was last seen around 12:15 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 18, near the 800 block of West Lill Avenue in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. Salvino was last known to have left a party in the 2400 block of North Geneva Terrace while wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt and maroon pants.
Northwestern’s Police Department will support Chicago Police in their investigation efforts.
If you or someone you know has information that could help locate Salvino, CPD asks you to call (312) 744-8266.
Salvino is a Ph.D. candidate in the Northwestern University Interdepartmental Neuroscience program.
