According to the Columbus Dispatch, senior Ohio State football walk-on Kosta Karageorge was reported missing by his family on Thursday after not being heard from since leaving his apartment early Wednesday morning.
Karageorge is a 6-foot-5 defensive end for the Buckeyes and has also wrestled for three years. His sister Sophia said he was last seen at 2 a.m. on Wednesday morning at his apartment.
Also, according to the article, Karageorge had told his roommates he was leaving to take a walk. The Columbus police reportedly confirmed they are looking for him, and through the GPS in his phone were able to place the device at W. 3rd and Elmwood avenues near Grandview Heights, though they have not obtained it.
"He had some extenuating circumstances that night that lead us to believe he was upset," Sophia Karageorge said.
It is believed that Karageorge either walked to the location of his phone, or used public transportation.
"He did not take his motorcycle and he does not have his car on campus," his sister said. "So he was either picked up, went on foot or took public transportation. He does not have his wallet or any identification on him that we know of because his girlfriend has his wallet."
Karageorge, 22, was last seen wearing black sweatpants over his jeans, a black sweatshirt with FOC on it, a black beanie, and Timberland boots. He also recently shaved his head and has a short beard.
Karageorge was supposed to be one of the 24 seniors recognized before the final home game of the season on Saturday. He was not seen at practice yesterday, and did not come to practice this morning.
