This is a photo of Josh from right before his high school graduation.
Joshua Guimond was last seen on the campus of St. John's University in Collegeville, Minnesota. He was leaving a get-together at Metten Court, an on-campus dorm, to travel back to his own on-campus apartment. Even though this was a short distance, he never made it back to his apartment.
The night of November 9, 2002 was the last time anyone saw or heard from Joshua. When he disappeared he was wearing a gray St. John's sweatshirt and blue jeans. He is 22-years-old and stands at 6' with blond hair.
Josh, as his friends call him, was a Junior at St. John's University. He studied Political Science, was a member of Mock Trial, and a member of the SJU College Republicans. Josh's friends describe him as an overachiever. His closest friends say that he pushed everyone to excel, not just himself. Josh had plans to go to law school after graduating from St. John's. He had goals of serving in the Minnesota House of Representatives.
Friends and family say that Josh's life was so well-planned that this disappearance has to be foul play.
His parents, from Maple Lake, Minnesota, are convinced that he must have been taken against his will. He did not have his glasses, his car, his credit cards, or even a coat that was appropriate for the weather. Also there were no belongings missing from his apartment.

This is a photo taken of Josh shortly before his disappearence. The community in Collegeville, Minnesota has been extremely supportive in the search for Josh. A "Find Joshua Sign" leaned against the stone wall at the entrance to the college. Many students were sporting a yellow ribbon on backpacks and jackets as a symbol of hope for Josh's safe return.
Police say they have searched the grounds and lakes near St. John's University thoroughly. The Sterns County Sheriff's Department searched the area on foot and on horseback.
The Sheriffs also brought the Trident Foundation to the area to search. The Trident Foundation provides technical support in water searches.
Overwhelming support has not only come from Josh's friends and family, but also from St. John's University. The president of the University has pledged to keep the search active in the hopes that Josh will safely return.
