The parents of a University of Chicago student who disappeared this week are asking that anyone with information come forward immediately.

20-year-old Austin Hudson-LaPore was last seen by his roommate, leaving his apartment in the 5300 block of South Kimbark Avenue Wednesday night, some time between 8:30 and 10.

His family says he was fascinated with the weather, and may have walked along 53rd or 55th street to the lakefront to watch a storm system roll into the area that night.

He left his phone and wallet, taking only his keys.

You can find photos of Austin and more information at a web site set up by the family …
