Sunil Tripathi, 22, was on leave from the Ivy League school but living in an apartment near campus with several other Brown students when he disappeared on March 16.

A surveillance video shows a tall and skinny man wearing a black cap, dark jacket and jeans walking south on Brook Street near Tripathi's apartment, WPRI-TV reports. The man matched Tripathi's description and was seen walking on March 16 at about 1:30 a.m., about 20 minutes after Tripathi's last recorded computer activity.

Tripathi's family asked area businesses to turn over their surveillance footage in their efforts to find him.
