Springsteen Lends Hand To Search For Mass. Student

Bruce Springsteen has taken to Facebook and Twitter to help find a missing Boston College student.

On both networks, Springsteen posted a missing person poster Wednesday of 21-year-old Franco Garcia of Newton. Garcia has been missing since he left a bar popular with Boston College students early on Feb. 22. Springsteen also tweeted a request for anyone with information about the case to call the Newton Police Department.

Meanwhile, state police divers continued a search for Garcia at a Chestnut Hill reservoir, but turned up nothing. They also searched Garcia’s home for clues on where he might be.
