Police confirm the death of a University of Texas at Dallas student who went missing last week

A 20-year-old student at the University of Texas at Dallas who went missing on February 24 has been declared dead, authorities said.

Richardson police confirmed the death of Andrew Zhou Li, a college sophomore, on Saturday, UTD police said in a social media post. He was not found on campus and authorities believe there is no threat to the community.

Li was reportedly last seen at his campus apartment on the evening of February 24.

His mother, Ai Ping Zhou, drove to campus from her home in Houston to help search for her son, Star-Telegram media partner WFAA-TV reported.

According to WFAA, Zhou spoke briefly with her son two days before his disappearance. She became concerned when a text message she sent on Saturday was left unread and the 20-year-old didn’t answer his phone.

“We all join Andrew’s family and friends in mourning this sad outcome. We offer our sincere condolences to all who knew him,” UTD police said.

Li’s cause of death is still under investigation.

Authorities encourage the public to utilize the university’s counseling services.

The Study Advice Center is available for appointments for UTD students. Students also have access to 24/7 counseling through UTDTALK 972-883-8255 and TimelyCare.

The university will hold its annual Comets Remember ceremony on March 19 to honor all UTD students who have passed away within the academic year.
