Midshipman missing from academy since Thursday

October 18, 1994

Naval investigators are looking for a freshman midshipman who was last seen at the U.S. Naval Academy during lunch Thursday, authorities said.

Midshipman 4th Class Trent Arsenault of St. Louis was reported missing after he failed to appear for the routine evening bed check Thursday. The 19-year-old student was last seen about noon that day. He did not attend his afternoon classes on Thursday.

The Naval Criminal Investigative Service has sent a missing-persons alert to police in other states and has told the midshipman's family about his disappearance.

Navy investigators are trying to find out whether Midshipman Arsenault had any reason to leave the academy without permission, said academy spokeswoman Karen Myers.

"No one seems to know," she said. "We're just going to keep looking for him."
