Stephanie Crispinelli, a Katonah resident who was on a college trip to Haiti this week still has not been found, her university said last night.
Lynn University said yesterday morning that they had been told Crispinelli and several other students had been found safe and were in the process of being evacuated. But in an updated news release last night, the university said that they had received “bad intelligence” and that Crispinelli was still missing.
“They remain lost,” Lynn University President Kevin M. Ross said. “Our search for those missing in Haiti has never ended, and tonight it continues.”
Crispinelli was among 12 Lynn University student who went to Haiti to work with Food for the Poor, an international relief and development group, the university said. The college has been trying to find the students since an earthquake devastated the Caribbean nation.
The college said that, so far, eight of the students have been accounted for and have returned to the campus of the Boca Raton-based university.
The college is posting regular updates on the search on its Web site at www.lynn.edu/alert.
