Police are searching for Omotayo Adeoye, a 17-year-old high school junior at the prestigious High School for Math, Science and Engineering at City College in Harlem.
After asking to be excused to go to the bathroom, Adeoye never returned to the school again. A girl matching her description was seen jumping or wading into the Hudson River at 165th Street.
The Nigerian immigrant, who could not swim, has not been seen since since she left the school. Police continued to search the river for her body this weekend.
