Reservoir Search Turns Up No Sign Of BC Student

This article is more than 7 years old.

State police say a four-day search of the Chestnut Hill Reservoir turned up no new leads into the disappearance of a Boston college student who's been missing for more than a month.

Franco Garcia's friends saw the 21-year-old from Newton leaving the bar Mary Ann's early on Feb. 22. Police say a camera of a nearby ATM captured images of Garcia right after he left the bar and that his cellphone pinged off a tower by the reservoir about an hour later.

State police said Sunday that an extensive search of the reservoir involving divers and sonar turned up nothing. Reservoir pump houses, surrounding wooded areas, BC's campus and nearby abandoned buildings also have been searched by foot and air.

Police say they've ruled out no possibilities, including foul play.
