TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - An Arizona State University student traveling with other students in Thailand is missing after going for a late-night swim.
   
ABC 15.COM reports ASU said crews in the beach city of Phuket were searching Wednesday for the body of 21-year-old Joshua Shane.
   
Shane and at least four other students went swimming Tuesday night and he never returned to shore, according to a local news outlet.
   
ASU spokeswoman Julie Newberg says Shane was a sustainability major and was studying abroad.
   
Newberg says the school is deeply saddened and is offering condolences to Shane's family and friends.
