California freshman midfield Eloi Vasquez reported missing



A freshman soccer player from the University of California has been missing since early Saturday morning, prompting appeals for information about his whereabouts.

Eloi Vasquez, 19, was reportedly last seen leaving a party at the University of Southern California’s Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity chapter early on Saturday. He was last heard from at 2:15 a.m. that morning. Cal Athletics has issued an appeal for any information.

“Our entire Cal Athletics family is very concerned for Eloi’s safety and our first priority is to help in any way we can to locate him,” the statement reads. “We ask that everyone keep Eloi and his family in their thoughts and pray for his safe return.”

A flier asking for information about Vasquez’s disappearance says the freshman may have gone to the beach after leaving the party.


  1. Not noted in the story is the fact that there is now a reward of $100k being offered for his (presumably safe) return.

    For the record, he was at USC, at a frat house. He left with only his cellphone, no money for sure. He told people there that he wanted to go to the beach. However far away it, that is what he said. He later (around 2.00 AM) called his girlfriend and said he was lost in LA.

    This situation is very real, it’s not a hoax. This is not just a student, this young man is a member of our global soccer family, and I would ask anyone who knows anything to contact the LAPD as soon as possible. Even is it is anonymous.

  2. I’m a Los Angeles native and if this is correct that he was last seen at USC, then the beach would be far for him to get to. USC is close to downtown LA which is not walkable by any means to any beach. UCLA is in Westwood which is closer to any beach but still is not walkable. I hope they find him and God Bless
