A 24-year-old information systems management student at University of Maryland Baltimore County has been missing since Nov. 28.

The brother of Tu Thi Cam Tran reported her missing to the school police, said Louise M. White, director of media relations for UMBC.

Tran lives with her brother and his family in Lanham, Prince George's County, White said.

A Baltimore County police spokesman said the case is being handled by the school since its police officers are fully certified to investigate incidents believed to have occurred on the campus.

Tran, a senior at UMBC, was last seen in the university center about 8:30 p.m. Nov. 26 by a friend, White said. Hours before, Tran had finished a class in the fine arts building about 6:45 p.m.

A search of the 500-acre university was organized immediately after Tran was reported missing. The effort was unsuccessful, White said.

White said there is no reason to believe Tran has been harmed.

Tran was described by White as attractive with dark hair to her shoulders and a slim build. Anyone with information about the missing student should call 455-3133.
