A 21-year-old student from the University of Rhode Island went missing this week on his way home to Skippack Township, Pa.—where he planned to spend his summer vacation with his family. Matthew Royer was reportedly last seen on campus May 16, the day he left. He sent a text message to his mom before leaving telling her that he had overslept. According to surveillance footage found on his route, he stopped for gas twice on the way. The college junior was planning to work at a golf course near his home. When he didn’t show, his parents called the police.
