A Montgomery County native has been reported missing in Pittsburgh.
According to the Pittsburgh Public Safety website, 22 year-old Paul Kochu, from Pottstown, was reported missing Wednesday.
His father, George Kochu, a Pottstown resident, says Paul was last seen at about 1 a.m. Tuesday by two of his three roommates.
The other roommate was at work.
He and those two roommates had gone to a bar down the street to watch a football game.
Paul left early, at around midnight, but called his roommates soon after because he had cut his hand on a broken water glass and needed help.
They came home, helped him with the cut and then went to get food because they were all hungry.
When they came home, Paul was not there.
His cell phone, wallet and keys were not there either, but his car was still parked outside.
Paul’s father says his credit and debit cards have not been used.
Paul moved to Pittsburgh to attend Duquesne University, which he graduated from in May.
His father has been in Pittsburgh searching for his son since he did not show up for work at Allegheny General Hospital, where he is a nurse, on Thursday.
His father says being a nurse was Paul’s dream come true.
His father also says there was a large search for Paul Saturday in South Side Pittsburgh.
More than 80 classmates, coworkers, friends and relatives searched the 40 blocks long by 10 blocks deep neighborhood.
The volunteers handing out flyers at homeless shelters and soup kitchens, and posted them to telephone poles.
Paul’s father says there have been no tips or updates.
According to the Pittsburgh Department of Public Safety, a $7,500 reward has been offered for any information that could lead to finding Paul.
Anyone with information should call the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police Missing Persons Office at 412-323-7141.
