USC Medical Student Who's Been Missing For Over A Month May Have Been Spotted
A private investigator believes a USC medical student who's been missing since last month is alive and may need immediate medical attention.The LAPD says that until recently, 26-year-old Derek Seehausen was last seen around 6 a.m. on August 5 on the 400 block of West Glenoaks Boulevard in Glendale. The Daily Trojan reported that there was no trace of him after 10:30 p.m. later that day when he withdrew money from a Wells Fargo ATM in Echo Park, which can be seen in the surveillance video below.
Seehausen's family was concerned that he was suicidal when he disappeared. A website HelpFindDerek.com was set up soon after Seehausen went missing in the hopes of finding him.
However, a recent possible sighting of Seehausen has led his family and a private investigator to believe that he is still alive. According to a press release from HelpFindDerek.com, the LAPD released a photo on Sept. 5 of a man who bears a resemblance to Seehausen on a Los Angeles Metro bus. His family will be holding a press conference tomorrow with more details and photos from the possible sighting.
Seehausen is 6 feet tall and weighs about 180 pounds. He has brown hair and hazel eyes, and has a burn scar on his right shoulder. He was last seen wearing a maroon t-shirt and tan shorts.
Anyone with information on Seehausen’s whereabouts is asked to contact the LAPD Adult Missing Person Unit at (213) 996-1800.
