Investigators shift focus in missing student case

TEMPE, Ariz. -

Tempe Police have concluded their search of Tempe Town Lake without any results. Investigators say they will instead focus on interviewing witnesses and following up on other leads.

19-year-old Jack Culolias was last seen Friday night after getting kicked out of the Cadillac Ranch at Tempe Marketplace. He left without his wallet and cell phone.

The search at the river basin was finished about noon on Thursday. Scent dogs and cadaver dogs from the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office assisted in the search, and after an extensive search of the lake and ground, nothing was found.

A red shoe that was found down an embankment by the lake, which may belong to Culolias, is still undergoing DNA tests. Those results should be back by next week to confirm if he owned the shoe.

Tempe Police said Thursday they have consulted the FBI but their involvement has not been determined as of yet.

    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is holding its monthly board meeting, two days after it heard from a panel on what it needs to do to improve its accountability and efficiency and restore public trust.
    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey could rescind a $1-a-year lease for a park-and-ride lot near the Lincoln Tunnel. The agency's chief of real estate and development told a committee Wednesday that it should change a deal made in 2012. Published reports have alleged that former Port Authority chairman David Samson voted to approve the lease even though his law firm did business with New Jersey Transit, which operates the park-and-ride lot.
