FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Police in Fargo are taking charge of the investigation into a missing North Dakota State University student who was last seen over the weekend.

Authorities say freshman Tom Bearson, of Sartell, Minnesota, hasn’t been seen since leaving a party about 3 a.m. Saturday. The nursing student lives in a residence hall on campus.

Lt. Joel Vettel tells KFGO-AM (https://bit.ly/1riG225 ) officers will search the neighborhoods around the campus. Fire fighters will also search the Red River for signs of Bearson.

Vettel says authorities at this point are not asking the public to participate in any search.

NDSU on Sunday reported on its website that Bearson was missing and asked the public for information on his whereabouts.

The St. Cloud Times reports Bearson was a standout basketball player at Sartell High School.
