A SEARCH is under way for a university student who has not been seen since the early hours of this morning.
Euan Coulthard, a 19-year-old law Student at St Mary’s College in Durham, was reported missing this afternoon by a friend who was concerned when he could not make contact with him.
Euan, who is from Nottingham, left his home in the city yesterday and later went for a meal at the Spaghettata restaurant in Saddler Street to celebrate a 21st birthday with friends.
He was last seen just after midnight leaving Love Shack, in the Walkergate area of the city, alone.
Euan has failed to respond to texts, emails and messages on Facebook that friends have sent him and they say this is completely out of character.
He is described as, 5ft 9in tall and of average build with light brown hair, which is short on the sides and longer on the top. When he was last seen he was wearing black skinny jeans, a denim jacket and a beige patterned shirt.
Inspector Dave Coxon said: “We have serious concerns for Euan’s welfare as there has been no trace of him since the early hours of this morning.
“He hasn’t responded to any attempts to contact him and his phone has not been traced.
“If anyone has seen him since then, or if they saw a young man matching his description in Durham on last night I would ask them to contact us as soon as possible on 101.”
The searches are being carried out across Durham city centre.
