A University of Indonesia (UI) student has reportedly been missing since the beginning of October. 

The university’s management filed a missing person’s report with the Depok Police after realizing the student, who had also deactivated her cellular number, had not been seen around campus for some time.

Based on a preliminary investigation, police believe she ran way after losing funds meant for the university’s student council.

"We found two letters in her boarding house. She wrote that she was sorry for losing the money," Depok Police spokesman Adj. Comr. Sutrisno said on Wednesday as quoted by

In the letters, she admitted to having sold her laptop and phone to replace the money, but was still unable to cover the full amount.

UI data shows that the student comes from an underprivileged family on Madura Island, East Java. (yon)
