 Mother Pleads for Help in Finding Missing Howard Student

Duncan’s mother, though, is still clinging to the hope that he is OK.

“I love my child; my family love my child. We wanna make sure he’s OK,” Ellenberg said.

Duncan’s mother flew in from California and says she plans to stay in the area passing out flyers and talking with students on Howard University’s campus until she learns of her son’s whereabouts or finds out what happened to him.

While the pressure of college can prompt some students to drop out and leave school abruptly, for reasons they have not made public D.C. police do not believe that has happened here and consider Duncan’s situation critical.
