The search for a missing Arizona State University student from Orange County is now focused on a nearby riverbed.

Jack Culolias, a 19-year-old from Brea, disappeared last Friday after attending a fraternity social event near the Tempe campus, and then getting kicked out of a local bar. He did not take his cellphone and credit cards.

His mother says she found one of his tennis shoes in a riverbed near the bar. Police have not yet confirmed that the shoe officially belongs to the missing victim.

Acting on a tip, officials are searching waters near where the college freshman went missing.

The fraternity Culolias was pledging, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, says it doesn't condone hazing and doesn't believe fraternity members are involved.

Anyone with information regarding this case was urged to contact Arizona State University police at (480) 695-6456.
