Minneapolis police said Monday that they've located video of a missing University of Minnesota student entering the river off of the 10th Avenue Bridge, near the university's campus.
Jennifer Houle, 22, a Carlson School of Management student, was last seen early Friday morning at the Blarney Pub at 412 14th Av. SE in Minneapolis. Police said they are not seeking suspects and are now beginning a water recovery mission with the help of the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office.
In a statement, the department issued condolences to Houle's family and friends and thanked people who provided information after her disappearance.
A police spokesman said the video footage was captured by a police surveillance camera in the area. It showed that Houle was alone at the time she went in the water.
Houle, a native of Lake Elmo, graduated from Stillwater Area High School.
Danita Brown Young, the university's vice provost for student affairs and dean of students released a statement Monday morning, saying the university was "deeply saddened" to learn the news about Houle, a member of the Pi Beta Phi sorority.
The university is offering counseling services to students, faculty and staff members, especially for Houle's fellow Carlson students and her sorority sisters.
