U.S. consular staff members in Malaysia are said to have located a 22-year-old Stanford senior who had been reported missing this week.
Jacob Boehm, traveling in Malaysia, was reported missing by his parents, who had not heard from him since Aug. 14.
Boehm had been frequently updating his route on an online map, but the updates stopped Aug. 14 in Jerantut in the Pahang District, near the entrance to Taman Negara National Park.
Early today, a consular staff member in Kuala Lumpur reportedly reached Boehm by two-way radio inside the park, according to a Facebook page created by his family and friends for people to share information and updates..
Boehm has been traveling on his own through Japan, Thailand and Malaysia, with a stop in Burma, after performing in Japan with the Stanford Chamber Chorale in June, his mother, Nancy Luberoff, told the Stanford Daily.
His parents had filed missing persons reports with the U.S. and German embassies in Kuala Lumpur and also were working through their local police in Chapel Hill, N.C. and their congressman, David Price, the Daily reported. Boehm is a dual citizen.
