Lirosi was last seen wearing a gray Patriots hooded sweatshirt, a blue, long sleeve shirt and khaki pants, police said. Durham police said they believe Lirosi took a path through a wooded area near his residence at 9 Woodman Road in Durham. He was last seen between 1 and 1:30 a.m. Saturday morning. He was reported missing at 3 a.m. Saturday morning. Police said Lirosi does not have a phone or identification with him. Police said he was drinking with friends before going missing. Jordan Blanchard, Lirosi’s friend and former roommate, was with him for part of the night. They separated when Lirosi left the bar they were at for a fraternity party where he allegedly got into a fight.”It’s pretty uncharacteristic of him,” Blanchard said. “This is his first fight ever.”Blanchard said after the fight broke up, “they kicked him out and told him to go home. That’s when he went into the woods.”Partygoers told Blanchard that Lirosi was last seen heading down a wooden path that students frequently use as a shortcut around campus.”We started to think how he would think, and we started walking through the woods on different trails,” Blanchard said. “We walked all the way to Jackson’s Landing to see if he was over there, and we could not find anything.”Durham police responded, using a K-9 and thermal drone to search the wooded area. State police and Fish and Game were called in later Saturday morning, using a helicopter to search for Lirosi. Lirosi’s wallet was found in a parking lot and his cellphone was found at the fraternity house. Blanchard and Lirosi’s friends are spreading the word locally.”I posted on my social media. Then we went around to all the frats and sororities and churches and local houses just to spread the word, exchange contact info. We gave information to the bus line, so now they are on the lookout, too,” Blanchard said. Anyone with information is advised to call 911 or contact Durham police at 603-868-2324.
