The family of a 21-year-old Rice University student who went missing while in Panama City Beach on spring break is asking the public to continue looking for him.

Reny Jose was reported missing Tuesday morning from the beachfront home he rented with friends.

Family friend Benny Thottam told the News Herald of Panama City that the search for Jose has extended to vacant buildings in the area.

The Bay County Sheriff's Office says a marine unit is searching the Gulf of Mexico near the home Jose was staying. They've also notified authorities in neighboring counties and the U.S. Coast Guard.

Jose's friends say they last saw him near the house on Monday evening. Deputies later found his clothes, cellphone and wallet in a trash can.
