NOLA police find missing Southern University student's car; search for student continues
NEW ORLEANS - According to a Friday (March 5) morning report from WWL-TV, New Orleans Police found the car of a missing Southern University student at an abandoned apartment complex in New Orleans East.
The student, 21-year-old Marquise Jones, has yet to be located.
Last Friday, Feb. 26, Jones reportedly came home from class to take care of a personal family matter that weekend. That night, after dropping food off at his mom's house, Jones reportedly drove to a house party in New Orleans.
Friends told family Jones left the event around 11:30 p.m. to head back to Slidell. That was the last time Jones was seen.
"I just want to talk to him, where is he?" Marquise's mother Erica Jones said to WWL-TV reporters. "Where's he at? It's just hard, it's hard not knowing. There are so many questions, and I can't get them answered."
Marquise was last seen wearing a grey Southern University t-shirt, blue jeans and a jean jacket, and he is described as having a mole on his left jaw line.
Anyone with additional information regarding the whereabouts of Jones should call New Orleans Police First District detectives at 504-658-6010.
