Bruns, 19, was last seen on campus around 5:30 p.m having dinner with friends., according to a LAPD spokesperson and friends of the missing man.

It was unclear where the missing student was.

The teenager’s father, Scott Bruns, has come to the Los Angeles area from Sacramento to assist with efforts to locate his son, a freshman film student. His friends said he is also active in campus ministry.

The Department of Public Safety at LMU assisted in the search.

CBS2’s Adrianna Weingold said Bruns had a phone argument with his parents Friday and hasn’t been seen since.

Investigators say “several personal items” were found in his dorm room at LMU.

“He was upset with his parents,” said Lt. Lydia Leos with the LAPD, “but it is unusual for a student to leave his wallet, his phone, his computer and not tell anyone where he was going. So that’s why the concern.”

He also didn’t take his medication with him although police said his condition is not life-threatening.

Saturday evening friends planned a prayer vigil on the campus.
