UC Berkeley student - missing - CONFIRMED KILLED in Nice

Family members of a UC Berkeley student studying abroad in Nice who has not been seen since a terror attack killed at least 84 people in the resort city are planning to fly to France to continue searching for him, relatives said Saturday.

Local officials, family and university staff have been unable to track down Nick Leslie, a 20-year-old junior in the school’s College of Natural Resources. Thursday’s deadly truck attack on Bastille Day injured more than 300 people, including three other UC Berkeley students.
Leslie was there for a four-week European Innovation Academy along with 85 other UC Berkeley students.

“We’re trying to get ourselves to France right now,” said Conrad Leslie, Nick’s father, Saturday morning. He said French officials have not released the names of those injured and being treated in local hospitals.

“We’re going crazy,” Leslie said. Nick Leslie’s uncle has been searching area hospitals since the attack....

UC Berkeley students Diane Huang, 20, who suffered a broken foot, and Vladyslav Kostiuk, 23, who was treated for a broken leg, were discharged from hospitals, officials with the university said Friday. A third student, Daryus Medora, 21, was still in the hospital with a broken leg.
