MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - Searchers looking for clues to the disappearance of a Chambersburg, Pa., college student on Tuesday found a baseball hat resembling one he was wearing before he disappeared, West Virginia State Police said.

Justin B. Hayduk, 18, a student at the University of Pittsburgh, was out with friends in Morgantown when he was separated from them Friday night.

No one has heard from him since 2 a.m. Saturday, state police in Morgantown said.

Cpl. Philip Scott said searchers found a white baseball cap with a University of Pittsburgh logo at around 4 p.m. near the Monongahela River in the downtown Morgantown area.

Police have checked local waterways, hospitals, hotels and cab services. They are passing out fliers and showing Hayduk's picture around the city.

On Tuesday, a state police helicopter searched the downtown area and boats were on the Monongahela River until dark Tuesday but came up with nothing other than the baseball hat, he said.

State Police were to bring in a private search and rescue dog team when the search resumes today at 9 a.m.

Hayduk is a 2000 graduate of Chambersburg Area Senior High School and a freshman at the University of Pittsburgh, where he is a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity, said

He was home on spring break and was to resume classes Monday.

Hayduk is a white male, about 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighing about 140 pounds, with brown hair and eyes. When last seen, he was wearing a Pitt baseball cap, a tan vest over a plaid shirt and jeans.

Anyone who hears from Hayduk may call the Morgantown Police Department's detective division at 304-284-7454.
