Jack Culolias search: Police confirm shoe found near Tempe Marketplace belongs to ASU student

TEMPE, AZ - Tempe police have again called off the search Friday evening for missing Arizona State University student Jack Culolias.

Police confirmed at a Friday news conference that a shoe found near Tempe Marketplace belonged to the 19-year-old ASU freshman.

The search was back on early Friday morning after a "concerned resident" called them with a tip.

Spokesman Michael Pooley with Tempe police told ABC15 around 7:30 a.m. Friday that detectives and search crews returned to the Tempe Marketplace area to continue the search for 19-year-old Culolias.

Pooley said the "concerned resident" called police Thursday evening with a tip that the person had seen an object, resembling a person's silhouette, in the water northeast of the area that crews had searched for three days.

"We are determined to find Jack Colulias and will continue our efforts in searching every area we feel may lead to more information in Jack's disappearance," Pooley said.

Police announced Thursday afternoon that police called off the search after spending days in the area from the McClintock bridge to around Dobson Road.

Culolias was last seen on Nov. 30 when he was reportedly asked to leave the Cadillac Ranch restaurant at Tempe Marketplace.

Anyone with any information regarding Culolias is encouraged to contact Tempe police by calling 480-350-8311, or you can submit a tip anonymously online on Tempe.gov.
