Positive ending in search for missing K-State player

Sam Harvill

Missing since early Wednesday afternoon, an erstwhile Kansas State player has been found, the Kansas City Star is reporting.

According to the paper, defensive tackle Sam Harvill was found on the grounds of the Fort Riley Military Installation in Kansas shortly very early Sunday morning.  The search for Harvill had stretched into its fourth day, although the lineman was found by military personnel during a routine check of the grounds.

In a press release, Riley County police stated that Harvill, who was reported missing by his mother Thursday, was in “good condition and required no immediate assistance.”  There has been no reason given for Harvill’s disappearance or why he was on the grounds of the military installation.

Harvill was a true freshman last season but did not play due to injury.  He practiced with the team this spring, but has not been listed on the team’s roster since the end of those sessions, the Star noted.

The paper went on to write that “Harvill was considered a member of the Kansas State football team earlier in the week, but a team spokesman said he was no longer part of the program on Saturday.”

    It is welcome news that Harville was found physically safe. I sure hope that he is receiving counsel and therapy as needed, and it appears he may well need some. Though his physical well-being is great news, his mental and emotional well being is in question. I am sure his family, friends, and professionals are helping him every way they can.

    This is one somewhat rare good ending to a story such as this.

    Thanks JT, we needed this.
