The missing teen was last seen leaving his college residence hall and walking towards a parking lot around around 8 p.m. on Tuesday night after attending all of his classes for the day. He was got on surveillance footage wearing a white hoodie, jeans, black and white shoes, and carrying his black backpack.

As Radar reported on August 27, Millersville U was quick to get the word out that the student had disappeared and promptly filed a missing person report with police after neither the school, friends, nor family could get into contact with him. They also posted several photos of Mindler to their official Twitter to spread the word and assist in the search.

The former actor had just begun his Freshman year at the university, and had not been involved in television and film for some years prior to his death. His last professional acting role was in the 2016 TV movie, Chad: An American Boy, but his resume also featured appearances in several shorts, and a small role in the soap opera As the World Turns in 2009.

There is currently no update from law enforcement on the cause of death, which is still under investigation, or whether or not there was foul play involved.
