Missing Student Found in the Bronx

According to an administrator, missing student Nyamal Pal was found today and is safe.

After missing for nearly a week, CAS senior Nyamal Pal was found safe Thursday morning.

Senior Vice President for Student Affairs Marc Wais confirmed that Pal was found in a statement to WSN.

“I want to update the NYU community with the great news that CAS student Nyamal Pal has been found, and is in safe hands,” Wais said. “Privacy considerations prevent me from providing more details, but I knew that everyone would want to hear about this positive turn of events.”

According to Pal’s friend and Skidmore College student Amanda Bonfante, Pal was found at a hospital in the Bronx with her family.

CAS junior Brittany Du Bois said Senior Associate Vice President for Student Affairs Tom Ellett alerted her cohort — which Pal is also in — that Pal had been found earlier today.

Pal had been missing since Feb. 22, when she was last seen leaving a Brooklyn courthouse without her personal belongings. Bonfante and many others subsequently circulated a missing poster with information about Pal on social media.

On Wednesday, Wais sent out an email to the NYU community regarding Pal’s missing persons case.

We encourage students to maintain their daily routines but to not ‘go it alone,’” the email reads. “If you or a friend needs to process this situation further, we encourage you to contact the 24/7 Wellness Exchange at 212-443-9999.”

Editor’s note: A previous version of this article gave the name of the hospital at which Pal was found. For privacy reasons, that information has been removed.

This is a developing story. This article will be updated as WSN gains more information.
