Middlebury police postponed a ground search yesterday for a missing Middlebury College student because of the weekend’s freezing rain and snow.
Melting snow had improved conditions to search for clues in the disappearance of 19-year-old Nicholas Garza, who has been missing for more than a month.
But ice and snow over the weekend prompted police to cancel the search.
Garza, a freshman, disappeared shortly after 11 p.m. Feb. 5, after leaving a friend’s dormitory.
His mother reported him missing five days later, after the college determined he had not left campus during winter break.
