Boston:  Singer Bruce Springsteen has taken to Facebook and Twitter to help find a missing Boston College student.

On both networks, Springsteen posted a missing person poster Wednesday of 21-year-old Franco Garcia of Newton. Garcia has been missing since he left a bar popular with Boston College students early on February 22. Springsteen also tweeted a request for anyone with information about the case to call the Newton Police Department.

Springsteen's son attends Boston College. Garcia was studying chemistry at Boston College and played clarinet in the symphony band.

Meanwhile, state police divers continued a search for Garcia at a Chestnut Hill reservoir, but turned up nothing. They also searched Garcia's home for clues on where he might be.
