HOUSTON -

It's been nearly three weeks since a Rice University student went missing in Florida.

Reny Jose's family is pleading for answers.

Jose's family issued a statement in a local newspaper in Panama City, Florida, pleading for any information to come forward.

The 21-year-old was last seen March 3 leaving a rented beach house.

Police believe Jose may have taken LSD before he went missing.

His clothes, wallet and cellphone were discovered in a trash can near the beach house he was renting with friends.
