Police in Minneapolis are searching for a missing University of Minnesota student who hasn’t been seen since last week.

Jennifer Houle, 22, was last seen around 1 a.m. Friday at the Blarney Bar in Dinkytown, a neighborhood in Minneapolis, police said. She is 5 foot 5 with long blond hair.

Houle, from the St. Paul area, is a member of the Pi Beta Phi sorority and her chapter posted a message on Facebook asking for the public’s help.

Houle is a student in the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management, vice provost Danita Brown Young said in a statement. The school is working with authorities to find her, Young said.

“We remain hopeful that Ms. Houle will be found safe and sound,” she said.
