Hope he is ok. Prayers for Kosta and his family.
I hope this all just turns out to be a misunderstanding.
Priority #1: Beat Michigan
Grandview is a pretty good area. I'm positive he will show up soon. He seems like he's doesn't get in any trouble.
I pray Kosta is safe. What a horrible Thanksgiving for the Karageorge family :(
Oh my God. My thoughts are with him and the family. This story has been told many times before. I've been that guy myself. Hopefully he turns up. We don't have many details yet but I immediately thought of the Denison student who didn't make it home from the bar last winter. I hope to God it's nothing like that.
Get home safe Kosta
Terrible, thoughts and prayers for him, family, and friends.
hoping he is found safe!! What an awful Thanksgiving for the family :(
Lord have mercy
If you die before you die, then you won't die when you die.
Geez, how awful. Here's hoping he is okay.

Thoughts and prayers for kosta and his family
The down vote is a mighty tool. Use it on idiots, not differing opinions.
I don't like the sounds of this, hopefully something happened and he just could not communicate with family and the team and missed the football meeting with a dead cell phone. Rather than this being end up being something no parent ever wants to experience.
Get Home Safe Kosta!
I dread the timing of Kosta's call. 2:30 am. We've said this before: Nothing good happens after midnight. Pray that it be just a false alarm.

Jesus I hope this guy is ok. Even if you're not into prayer, this is the time for it
Parents worst nightmare. Be safe
Praying. Please be ok. Please.

Really hope he is ok, terrible news. We are praying for you young man!
Read this on Ten TV's site:
His sister said, "She also says Karageorge has a history of concussions and sometimes becomes disoriented. "
Really hope he's just hanging out somewhere safe and able to get home today!

Wow, sad news to hear today. Prayers for his family and our family for one of our own. Hope he's safe.
Lord, send your Angels to protect him and his family. Bring him back safe, and healthy, and give peace to everyone involved. We thank you in advance for all you will do.

UPDATED 12:19 p.m. ET: From the Cleveland Plain Dealer:
Karageorge’s sister, Sophia, told cleveland.com that her brother was upset about something Tuesday night. His roommates, who are also Ohio State wrestlers, said he went for a walk from their apartment on East 7th Avenue in Columbus around 2 a.m.
Didn't they say his phone was in Grandview?
Thoughts and prayers with Kosta, his family and OSU, praying he returns home safely.

Wow, what a scumbag. Sure hope that no one in his family ever goes missing. Karma is a bitch.

@HunterORourke1 must be hard for your family to pretend to be thankful for having such a piece of shit like you around.
Listen to the music.
Don't even dignify that nonsense with views or replies. Saying prayers for Kosta's swift return to family, friends, and teammates. Also that his family is strong during this time.

I was hoping they would have found him already. I sure hope he just took a drive to clear his head and lost his phone. Seems serious though. Praying for him and his family.
I hope he's ok, praying for a safe return.
Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family...
I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.

Perspective on what really matters. Get home safe Kosta, that means more than anything that could happen on Saturday.

Any new word? Hope he's safe and home soon.

Surprised osu hasnt made a statement. ..meyer or the athletic department

This seems like a privacy / health issue
im that case OSU can't comment.... That is my assumption, anyways

Wondering what his "extenuating circumstances" were/are? Hopefully he turns up okay.
There can be only one
The concussion comments are a bit unsettling, but I hope he isn't depressed. People who are able to hide it, effectively take away any chance for help. I keep refreshing everything I can to keep updated on this. Here's to hoping he's okay, somewhere. It's hard for a man that size to disappear.

I'm checking this site often today. Hoping for the best.
Same here. I hope he is okay.
Similar story thhough. One of my best friends went "missing" for a few days once. Scared the crap out of almost everyone. Somehow I knew he was fine. Turned out he just bailed from Columbus for a while, drove to upstate new York to see the Niagara Falls and stopped by Wooster for a couple days on his way back. Just wanted to clear his head and didn't want to talk to anyone. I hope this turns out the same.
Ignorance isn't bliss for the rest of us.
Glad hes ok. Wooster is a odd choice of place to stop by. I'm from there and there...isn't much there.
One of our friends from high school went to the college of wooster, so he stopped there for a bit.
He was OK after that though. He was a good breed.
I'm guessing you're from Smithville?
Please show up safe and sound.

I hope he is ok!!! This is terrible!!!!
I'm hoping and praying he is found ok.
Prayers going out to this young man and his family.

Anyone know if there may be an organized search party soon? I'm out of town until tomorrow evening, but would love to help in some way when I return.
Just awful news. Fifth year senior. Playing all this time simply for theclove of the game. No scholly, no awards, no glory...just love of sport and his brothers.
been busy all day and just heard .... i dropped to my knees because i felt so helpless and thats all i could do...i feel sick....your not alone man.... please come home... you are one of us for life... please...
Any news updates? Been nearly 24 hours. Beginning to get a sick feeling in my stomach ...
...12 hours since my last comment, I really thought by now we would get some good news.
I feel so bad for the Karageorge family, spending a day without a loved one is hard... Spending a day not even knowing where a love one even is has to be absolutely unbearable.
I can not even begin to imagine fighting the internal battle of hoping for the best and praying with all your heart that its not something far worse.
Kosta we are all wishing for your safe return!
This is really upsetting, it does not sound good. I hope they find him safe and sound. Still in shock since I first saw this an hour ago, I just can't believe it.
Proponent of the ladies XS v-neck tee.
This is really bothering me too. Thought there might be some good news by now... I think about what a wonderful day I had with family and friends, and how fortunate I am ...just hope this young man is ok and that he and his family will be able to have a celebration, because that may not have been possible for them today.
Will continue to pray for Kosta & family
oh my GOD...no news...please man, believe me ...you are not alone...if you can, come home... YOU ARE NOT ALONE.... I WAS ON THIS TEAM 40 YEARS AGO AND WE WILL HELP IN ANY SITUATION ... LISTEN...WHAT EVER IT TAKES...COME HOME...
His Twitter account says he loves his school, country and truck. He sounds a little redneckish: Lolz.
In all seriousness, I hope he's ok. I haven't been to that part of campus in some time, but I know E. 7th used to be pretty rough and may still be. Maybe he just needed to clear his head and didn't think his family would worry as much as they are.
And then I told her...i'm no weatherman, but tonight's forecast is calling for several inches!
I'm guessing your empathy was lost somewhere down the line...WTF Grow up.
Kindly notice that the italics were there because it wasn't meant to be taken serious seeing as how I don't know the kid. I know several people that are self described rednecks and was making light of a situation based off that and them having love for country, truck etc.
I'm guessing you and everyone else didn't bother to read the rest where I stated how I hope he's ok. I appreciate your attempt at a "coaching." I definitely needed that. Can't please the world, I guess.
Any updates? Been an awfuly long time. I'm sure today has felt like an eternity to his loved. Lifting them up through prayer tonight. Really puts things into perspective.
Shocked there hasn't been news. Will pray for his family.
I have some questions that maybe you all can answer.... the jump into Mirror Lake was on Tuesday night right? What time did that stuff end at? im not familiar with the campus to know if that ping on his phone is anywhere close to Mirror Lake. But could have he possibly been going there? Or was that over way ealier than 2 A.M. Wednesday morning?
Just seems strange that he would leave his wallet with his girlfriend. That's why I thought maybe he didn't take it because he planned on jumping in the lake so she held it for him. That or it could have been purely accidental.
Also with the sisters statement, not sure if he could have meant to get away intentionally whether that is induced by a post concussion disorder or something else going on.
It's also very possible he realized after the fact that he didn't have his ID and somehow that led him into a bad predicament.
I hope what I am saying doesn't come off in a negative way... I have just been thinking a lot about what could have possibly happened. Especially being a holiday I just can't fathom him not making any contact with anyone as accidental...
I hope my worries are wrong, hope in some way this turns out with good news.
I wish I could be in Colombus tomorrow at 1pm with the search party trying to find him. If you can just search Twitter #findkosta and they have information on that.
As far as I have heard, Mirror Lake had pretty much wound down by 2am so it seems strange that hr would have ended up there. Plus, as much as everyone has complained about the restrictions on mirror lake I doubt anything could happen there at the lake without someone noticing, even before the wristbands they were real good at getting help for the few people who ended up needing it.
Grandview seems like a strange destination from E 7th unless he was possibly going to find someone who lived over there? Although I guess if he ended up on 5th heading west and just kept walking, Grandview is just about where he would end up after half an hour of casual walking, so that timing makes sense with the "taking a walk".
All in all, this is a horrbile situation for his family and I'm praying that he just ended up somewhere unfamiliar with a dead phone but the longer there is no news, the scarier it gets.
I trust in UFM
Very unsettling without any positive news regarding Karageorge yet.
I have been checking in on this thread multiple times simply wanting the banner to say
"OSU player found safe and sound"
I was hoping to see that he was found safe. I will continue to pray for him and his family. Along with all of us within the Buckeye family.
You win with people
Lots of prayers for a good ending to this.
What is the crime situation, or risk of crime, in that part of town (sorry, I've never lived there).
I'm really surprised that no new information has come out today.

Grandview (where his phone was tracked at least) is a pretty good area. His apartment (East 7th)? A bit sketchy.
Just saw on Columbus Dispatch (on-line) that a search party for Kosta is being organized in the Grandview Heights neighborhood @ 1pm EST today (11/28/14). Rally point is at Stauf's, 1277 Grandview Avenue. Wish I could be there to help. Hope that he found soon and is OK.
Thank you I was trying to figure out how share the tweet from #buckeyenation on Twitter about this
Believing the best for Kosta & his family!
I'm hoping for the best for Kosta. Here's to finding him soon.
Show them Ohio's here.
I'm hoping for the best! Praying for him and the family!
Any updates on the search?
They found him... Gun shot wound to the head... Apparently self inflicted... Found in a dumpster..
Guess I was late didn't see the thread about this from a few hours ago.
