Former child actor Matthew Mindler has passed away at 19.
As OK! previously reported, Millersville U was quick to get the word out that the student was missing and file a missing person report with police. They also posted several photos via their official Twitter to spread the word.
Prior to his disappearance, the student was last seen leaving his college residence hall towards a parking lot around around 8 p.m. on Tuesday night after attending all of his classes for the day. He was reported to be wearing a white hoodie, jeans, black and white shoes, and carrying his black back pack.
"It is with a grieving heart that I let you know of the death of 19-year-old Matthew Mindler from Hellertown, Pennsylvania, a first-year student at Millersville University. A search had been underway for Matthew since Thursday, after he was reported missing. Matthew was found deceased this morning, Saturday, August 28, in Manor Township near campus."
The former actor had just begun his Freshman year at the university, and had not been involved in television and film for some years prior to his death. His last professional acting role was in the 2016 TV movie, Chad: An American Boy, but his resume also featured appearances in several shorts, and a small role in the soap opera As the World Turns in 2009.
There is currently no update from law enforcement on the cause of death, or whether or not there was foul play involved.
