GSU student missing since March 28
GSU.3D EagleHead

A Georgia Southern University student has been missing since March 28, and university police are still investigating the matter.

Students received an Eagle Gram April 2 from the university's dean of students stating the missing man is John David Keeton, 19, a white male who resided at Centennial Place. He was last seen five days before the email was issued in his residence hall, according to the message.

"The preliminary investigation has determined that Mr. Keeton left GSU voluntarily," the Eagle Gram reads. Keeton is originally from Auburn, Ga.

Georgia Southern University Police Chief Mike Russell would not release additional information in response to questions from the Statesboro Herald on the case Monday except to say that no foul play is suspected. The Herald also requested Keeton's photograph, but the university did not provide it.

Anyone with information on Mr. Keeton's whereabouts or can assist in this investigation is asked to contact the Georgia Southern University Police at (912) 478-5234.
