Police: Missing Pa. college student found unharmed

SKIPPACK, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania State Police say a missing college student from suburban Philadelphia has been found unharmed.

However, authorities on Thursday would not disclose where 21-year-old Matthew Royer was located.

State troopers say they won’t comment further on the case. They say Royer’s family has asked for privacy.

Royer disappeared earlier this month while returning home from the University of Rhode Island. They say he was seen leaving his apartment in Rhode Island on May 16.

Authorities say he was last seen the following day on surveillance video in Breinigsville, in eastern Pennsylvania.

Royer’s parents had offered emotional pleas for their son to return home to Collegeville.
