Latest Update: Kolajo was found deceased from a head trauma a little earlier. It seems he had an accident along his run. Thank you for your energy on this everyone. It’s appreciated.
Hi my wonderful EJ community. We could use some help with some grass roots outreach. A friend of mine’s brother has been missing for over 24 hours in Providence, RI. The details are below ( and here is the website for more pictures and updated info). If anyone has any information you can contact me via facebook or any of the numbers below. Thank you so much for your help.
Kolajo Paul Afolabis’ disappearance is completely out of character and of great concern. He left his home in Providence, RI around 9 am on Wed 9/21 to go running and has not been seen or heard from since. His wallet, keys, and cell phone are all at his home, as he only bring his iPod and a house key on his runs. He is 6’3″, 175 lbs. and has hazel eyes.
Kolajo is currently a Ph.D. sutdent in the Harvard education department and is teaching classes in the education department at Brown University this semester. He owns a home in Providence that he shares with his partner and their two dogs. He is incredibly reliable and follows a daily routine, and his running path is not in a remote or unpopulated area. My best friend spoke with him at length on the evening of Tuesday, 9/20 and he was in good spirits and working on lesson plans for a class he is teaching at Brown.
A missing person report has been filed with the Providence Police Department, the Rhode Island State Police, the Brown University Department of Public Safety and the Harvard Police have been notified. If you have any information, please contact the Providence PD at 401-272-3121.
