4 Ethiopian Track Members Missing

Hayward-Flags-250x250EUGENE, Ore. — Four members from the Ethiopian track team are missing from the IAAF World Junior Championships, a spokesperson from the University of Oregon said.

The championships wrap up Sunday night, but officials say the missing members left early without their team.

The University of Oregon Police Department is working to try to locate the members. They say a secondhand source claims the athletes are safe in another part of the state, but officials haven’t been able to contact the track members directly to confirm that.

Officials say three adult women and one 17-year-old male are missing.
