Alex Hendry, a 19-year-old freshman at Onondaga Community College in Syracuse, New York, was last seen leaving an off-campus party early Sunday, according to a statement from the Onondaga County Sheriff's Office.

His roommate reported him missing Sunday afternoon. He was located following "an extensive search" by police and campus security near the college's baseball and softball diamonds, officials said on Monday.
