Two UF Students Are Missing In Haiti
UF is still waiting to hear some type of communication from two students that have gone missing since the earthquake hit Haiti Tuesday. Jon Bougher and Roman Safiullin are graduate journalism students at the university. They left for Haiti Sunday to work on a documentary for an aid organization called Planting Peace.
The two students were staying at an orphanage in Port-Au-Prince. UF professors Ed Hanlon and Florence Sergile are there as well, fortunately they have made contact with the university and are safe.
UF Senior Luckner Francois is president of the Hope for Haiti organization on campus. No one has heard from his family, who still live there.
"It was disheartening," Luckner said. "People are crying for help, people trying to reach out. You have to have courage to endure and I believe my people have a lot of courage.
