PHOTO: Relatives of 28yo missing med student Ambrose Monye, who vanished in Chicago a month before graduating, is "perplexed" and "distraught" over his disappearance.
Monye has been studying internal medicine in Guadalajara Mexico, but was completing clinical rotations this spring at Jackson Park Hospital, alongside one of his siblings.
The "shy and quiet" young doctor-to-be hasn't been seen or heard from since on or about April 21st, and both his cell phone and bank accounts have gone inactive.
Ambrose Monye allegedly last interacted with his brother and may have been sighted by a colleague the following afternoon in the area of the Chicago hospital where he'd been interning.
A missing persons report for him was filed a few days after he failed to show up there again as scheduled and simultaneously lost contact with loved ones.
Though the athletic and "soft spoken" 28-year-old was known to frequent the nearby university library and cafes in the Hyde Park neighborhood, he didn't socialize much because he was too bashful "to even talk to strangers."
Monye instead spends most of his free time "just studying" or visiting with his relatives.
According to them, he isn't depressed, has no health issues requiring medication, and "has never gone missing before."
Foreign med student Ambrose Monye is 5-foot-10 and 180 pounds, with brown eyes, black hair and a medium complexion.
Anyone with knowledge of his whereabouts should alert Area Central detectives in Chicago's South Side at (312) 747-8380.
