Police are hoping you can help them find a Hudson Valley college student who went missing from the local area last weekend.

On Monday, New York State Police in Rhinebeck began searching for 20-year-old Eily Wright. Police were told that Wright left Hyde Park on Friday just before 6 p.m. He was expected at his parent's house in Pennsylvania by 10 p.m. but never arrived.

Wright was driving a 2001 Volkswagen Jetta with a Pennsylvania license plate "KHC-4664." Police were tipped off that Wright may have traveled to Minnesota, but say he's not answering his cell phone.

On Tuesday, Wright's family member wrote on Facebook that Wright was spotted in Saint Paul, Minnesota, but authorities haven't been able to make contact with him.

Wright attended the Culinary Institute of America, but won't be able to finish his degree, according to his family member.


His family believes he's "overwhelmed with life" and "feels like he has failed at everything and failed us."

"We would like him to know that he has not failed us. We just want him to know we love him and want him to come home safe," Dianna Frankovsky Lencoski wrote on Facebook.

If anyone has information regarding Wright's whereabouts please contact New York State Police at Troop K Headquarters (845) 677-7300.

Update: In the past week, neither Wright's family or police have given any updates on Wright. Officials are still searching for him and hope you can help.
