British Exchange Student Vanishes in Virginia

A British exchange student at a Virginia university has vanished after heading out to the woods for mountain biking. Jonny Dorey, 22, last used his cell phone that morning nearly two weeks ago. Two police searches have failed to turn up any trace of the geography student in the Richmond area. He's a "lovable lad," said a pal who noted Dorey had been making vacation plans with a friend. Police are trying to retrace his last known steps, and Virginia Commonwealth University is offering a $5,000 reward for information, reports the Guardian.
