Family and members of the region’s Kenyan community are banding together in an effort to track down a Northeastern University student who has now been missing for more than two weeks.
Dennis Njoroge, 21-year-old student at the school, has been missing since Nov. 29, police at his school have said.
Community members have begun holding daily meetings in Worcester and Boston, organizing a search effort and hoping for Njoroge’s safe return.
“We meet every day and we have prayers in our house,” said Tony Mathu, a family friend who is leading the awareness campaign.
This weekend, T-shirt wearing volunteers posted missing person fliers around the city and handed them out on sidewalks.
Community members from as far away as Minnesota have come to Massachusetts to help, Mathu told Metro.
