Northwestern student Gabriel Corona has been located in Chicago in “good physical condition,” Evanston police said Saturday afternoon.

Corona’s family has been notified, and he has been provided with the “appropriate follow up and care,” according to an Evanston Police Department news release. His location was not disclosed. He was not a victim of a crime, police said.

Corona was first reported missing after he left his apartment Tuesday morning without his phone and did not return that evening. He was last seen in surveillance footage at the Washington and Wabash CTA station at about 1:30 p.m. the same afternoon, police said.

On Friday, University Police announced it had expanded the search and began checking over 200 buildings on the Evanston and Chicago campuses.

Foul play was not suspected, though police had “great concern” due to dangerously cold temperatures that hit the region on Wednesday.

“I can’t tell you how happy and relieved we are that Gabe has been found safely,” University Police Chief Bruce Lewis said in the release. “We are extraordinarily grateful to Evanston and Chicago police for their hard work and collaboration in this investigation.”
