PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – Members of the Tripathi family and Brown University have created a "Joining Hands" event that was designed to send messages to missing student Sunil Tripathi.
Since the student was reported missing on March 16, Providence and University authorities have been carrying on an extensive search.

In an effort to reach out to Sunil, the Brown community has been asked to attend an event that is taking place on Tuesday, April 23 at 10:30 a.m. on the College Green at Brown.
All are invited to write messages for Tripathi on their hands. Photos of these messages will then be shared on Facebook and other social media to inspire the missing student to return.
After being incorrectly linked to the Boston Marathon Bombings, Sunil's sister hopes that this campaign will keep the momentum of the search going, but in a positive way.
