Please Help Find Hannah Upp

She has not been seen since last Friday, August 29. Her keys, wallet, phone, metro card, and metro card, and passport were all found in her room.

Hannah graduated from Bryn Mawr College in 2007, a year after I did. She is truly one of the sweetest, kindest people anyone could meet. Her friends started a facebook group called "We're Not Giving Upp (On Hannah), and over 1,500 people have joined and are getting media attention. Please, please, please, if anyone who reads this blog knows anything, or could help in any way, please contact the police, leave a message for the facebook group, or let me know and I will pass on the message to the appropriate people. You don't have to give your name or anything.

Here is the information posted on the facebook group, by Hannah's brother, Wally:
