MOUNT AUBURN, OH (FOX19) - A University of Cincinnati student has been missing since early Sunday morning.

Brogan Dulle, 21, a Turpin High School graduate whose family lives in Anderson Township, went out Saturday night with two friends to The St. Clair bar on Calhoun Street and Mac's Pizza Pub on West McMillan St.

Around 2 a.m. Sunday, Dulle went back to his apartment in the 100 block of East McMillan St., realized his cell phone was missing and presumably went back out to retrace his steps. He's not been seen since then.

Dulle, who is studying education at UC, did not go to work on Monday.

He is described as 6 feet tall, 145 pounds, with blond hair and blue eyes with eyeglasses. He was last seen wearing a blue shirt and khaki pants. A missing person report was filed Monday night.

Dulle is a swim coach at Mercy HealthPlex and Turpin Hills Swim Club.

Family members described Dulle's disappearance as surreal.

"It doesn't seem like one of those things that happens to you, you hear about it on TV and now it's live," said Brogan's cousin Libby Macveigh.

"We've been watching him since he was born. He's a goofball, the silly guy. The one when as soon as you walk in the door you're already laughing and he hasn't even started talking yet," added Macveigh.

Friends and family have created a Facebook page called "Help find Brogan Dulle." The family has released a statement saying:

"We would like to thank everyone who has searched, posted, shared or tweeted in our efforts to find Brogan, including those who love him and know what a wonderful and caring young man he is.  We also want to thank the many complete strangers who are working so hard to help find Brogan.  The kindness and love shared by so many is helping us tremendously during this difficult time.  We are hopeful that Brogan will be found safe and soon.  We miss him and love him very much.

Brogan if you see this, nothing matters but getting you home.  Please reach out to any of us, Mom, Dad, siblings, aunts, uncles or cousins.  We are all here for you."

Dulle's disappearance captured the attention of UC President Santa Ono who tweeted "Brogan Dulle is in my thoughts and prayers. We want him back home and at UC."
