Memorial set for missing Citadel student from Greer

Published on Wednesday, November 16, 2011

A memorial will be held Thursday for missing Citadel senior Joshua Edwards who has been missing since last week.

Citadel President Lt. Gen. John Rosa told a Tuesday assembly at the McAlister Field House that Edwards went missing last Thursday after attending a speech. Edwards, 21, is a chemistry major from Greer.

Edwards sent instructions to friends to check his computer, the Charleston Post and Courier reported. "On there was a very compelling case of a young man who was very upset and very distraught," Rosa said.

A car belonging to Edwards was found Friday on East Ashley Avenue on Folly Beach, but a large search failed to find him. Charleston County Police and the Coast Guard assisted in the search.

Rosa said the school is still actively searching for Edwards, but his family has now requested that a memorial service be held for him on Thursday. The school will comply with that request, Rosa said. Further details have not been announced.
