The mother of an American college student reported missing in Bermuda is appealing for the public's help in finding her son, the AP reports. Nineteen-year-old Mark Dombroski is a member of the rugby team at Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia. Dombroski was competing in an international rugby tournament in Bermuda when he disappeared early Sunday.

Dombroski was last seen at 1:15am Sunday. Police say government surveillance cameras recorded him walking east away from the bar where he'd been relaxing with the team. Police say alcohol is not believed to have played a role in his disappearance. Lisa Dombroski, speaking in Bermuda on Monday, thanked businesses, residents, and police for their efforts to locate him and says people have been with her family "shoulder to shoulder throughout this ordeal."
