A happy ending at Penn State: A former student reported missing on Friday has been found and reunited with his family, reports the Centre Daily Times. Police say an acquaintance spotted 23-year-old Jon Steindorf yesterday afternoon in a neighborhood of State College, Pa., and notified police. He seemed healthy in all respects, and agreed to accept a ride to his parents' home. Alarms went off Friday when his parents showed up at his off-campus apartment to pick him up for graduation, only to learn that Steindorf hadn't been attending classes as they'd thought, wasn't slated to graduate, and was nowhere in sight. "Our case is closed," a police official tells the Daily Collegian. "This is a happy story." (More Penn State stories.)
