The federal police are searching for a man (22) who is missing after a New Year’s Eve party in Flemish Brabant.

The 22-year-old student was last seen at around 3:00 AM on Steenkaai in Vilvoorde, at a party in the Kruitfabriek event venue.

No trace of the 22-year-old has been found since. In response to the man’s disappearance, a number of volunteers searched the surrounding area on Wednesday, VRT writes.

The student is just less than 2 meters tall and is normally built. He has brown hair and wears round glasses.

At the time of his disappearance, he was wearing brown velvet trousers, a blue checkered shirt, a grey sweater and a dark blue coat, the federal police explain in a statement.
