Missing UC Berkeley student found in Oceanside

OCEANSIDE, Calif. - A 20-year-old UC Berkeley student who disappeared a week ago after telling his family in Baldwin Hills that he was going to visit a friend in San Diego was found Tuesday in Oceanside.

Young Douglas Jr.'s father, a Los Angeles Unified School District administrator, said his son was located by law enforcement and appeared to be OK, though he didn't yet know where the young man had been since leaving home or why he hadn't kept in touch with his family.

"He apparently just wanted to go on an adventure and he didn't let us know," Young Douglas Sr. said.

The Cal student, home for summer break, had told his family that he was going to San Diego to see a former high school classmate, according to his father.
