BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – A U-High graduate is missing in the Bahamas after he went overboard Wednesday night, LSU officials said.
LSU identified the student as Cameron Robbins, 18.
According to LSU, Robbins has not been found but authorities are searching for him. Officials also said multiple seniors from different schools were on a trip to Atlantis, which U-High did not sanction.
Kevin George, the director of the University Lab School, said he has been in touch with the family and authorities are still looking for Robbins.
“In times like these, we must come together and support each other. Words fall short of expressing the worry our entire school community is feeling,” George said.
George said extra counselors will be available on campus to speak with students and faculty.
“Our thoughts are with the Robbins family, and we ask that you keep them in your thoughts as well,” George said.
The school held a prayer vigil for the students Thursday morning.
This is a developing story. BRProud has contacted the U.S. Embassy in the Bahamas for more information.
