Gainesville police searching for missing UF student

GAINESVILLE — Police in Gainesville say they've identified a person of interest in the case of a missing University of Florida student from Miami.

The Gainesville Sun reports police believe 18-year-old Christian Aguilar may have been a victim of foul play.

Police say 18-year-old Pedro A Bravo says he had an altercation with Aguilar on Thursday evening and left him in a parking lot. Police say Aguilar may be disoriented or seriously injured and may not be able to seek help.

The newspaper reports that Bravo has not been charged but is being held under the state's Baker Act after making comments to police about wanting to harm himself.

Aguilar's friends and relatives have been searching for him since Friday. He was last seen wearing a blue-gray hoodie and light-colored jeans.
