The search continues for a UC Berkeley student who disappeared after leaving a house party near the USC campus.Police say Eloi Vasquez left the party around 1:30 a.m. Saturday morning on the 600 block of West 28th Street, telling friends he wanted to go for a walk. According to NBC 4, he told friends over the phone that wanted to go to the beach. He later called a friend in Northern California at 2:18 that morning, telling her he was lost and "screwed."

"Everyone knows how responsible he is," Vasquez's mother Wendy Margolin said. "He hasn't contacted anyone since. Something is going on with him." Vasquez left the party without his ID or any money, and his phone has since died.

The Cal student is a freshman who also plays for the school's soccer team.

Eloi Vasquez is described as a Hispanic male with black hair and brown eyes. He is 6 feet tall and weighs around 175 pounds. He was last seen wearing a white and red t-shirt (as seen in the photo above), grey pants, and white tennis shoes.
