TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities are searching around the Tempe Town Lake area for a missing Arizona State University student.

Campus police say 19-year-old Jack Culolias was last seen late Friday night at a Tempe Marketplace bar. He was reported missing Sunday night by his mother.

Tempe police and Maricopa County Sheriff's Office K-9 units searched around the Tempe Town Lake area Tuesday.

The Arizona Republic says Culolias' mother reported finding a shoe near the water's edge that she believes belonged to her son.

ASU police say Culolias was kicked out of a bar on Friday night and was suspected of being drunk.

They say his cellphone and credit card were left at the bar where he allegedly was using false identification.

Campus police say Culolias was seen by friends heading to a taxi.
