One UC Berkeley student is reported missing and three others were injured in the terror attacks in Nice, France, according to the university. The students were traveling as part of a 15-day study abroad program.

Nicolas Leslie, 20, a junior from Del Mar, remains unaccounted for. “Campus study abroad, risk services office and student affairs staff are working with fellow students in France, the program director on the ground, local officials, U.S. consular officials and the family to locate him,” according to Berkeley News.

Two UC Berkeley students suffered broken legs and were hospitalized in France, while a third had a broken foot, according to the university.

UC Davis reports that all students on summer abroad programs in France are unhurt and accounted for. No UC Davis students were in the Nice region.
