Police are searching for a missing University of Rhode Island student who was traveling home to southeastern Pennsylvania last week, but never made it.

Investigators say 21-year-old Collegeville resident Matthew Royer was last seen leaving his apartment in Rhode Island on Thursday.

State police in Pennsylvania and Rhode Island are attempting to locate him and family members tell WFMZ-TV that Royer's cellphone registered activity early Friday near Interstate 78 and Route 309 in Lehigh County.

Authorities say he was driving a silver 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt with Pennsylvania registration.
