Matthew Wilson, a 20 year old computer science major and straight-A student at Rice University has been missing since December 15, 2007. According to reports, Matthew Wilson made a $400 cash withdrawal from his bank account on Dec. 14, the day he was last seen. We hope that the bank machine that the transaction was done at has a camera.
“He’s a very serious student. He doesn’t participate in high-risk behaviors. It was really out of place. This is a gentleman who takes his school work very, very serious.”
Wilson was not known to drink or party. (Houston Chronicle)

If anyone has any information about Matthew Wilson’s whereabouts please call the Rice University Police Department at 713-348-6000. To respond to the Crime Stoppers offer, call 713-222-TIPS (8477).
“I saw him … he was in his room, working,” said Elliott Harwell, Wilson’s roommate, of that last Dec. 14 sighting.
Harwell, a history major, left their apartment Friday night to work on a paper.
When he came back Saturday and saw Wilson’s silver 2004 Dodge Neon was gone, he assumed his roommate was in a computer lab or library.
“He’s a very diligent student,” Harwell said.
So diligent in fact, that Wilson eschewed e-mail because he found it a distraction. Unlike many students, Wilson didn’t devote much online energy to anything other than work. No page on Facebook or MySpace.
Rice University police are looking for leads in the disappearance of 20-year-old student Matthew J. Wilson, who was last seen by his roommate the evening of Dec. 14 at their off-campus apartment.
Crime Stoppers of Houston is offering a $5,000 cash reward for information leading to felony charges in the case.
