A University of Birmingham student has been reported missing

Joseph Derbisz was last seen on Sunday 27 March at 3:30AM at Fab ‘n’ Fresh

University of Birmingham student Joseph Derbisz has gone missing.

The third year student was last seen at the University of Birmingham’s Fab ‘n’ Fresh club night on Sunday morning at 3:30am.

His phone was tracked to a house on Croydon Road, Selly Oak, on Sunday morning at 10.39am, but has since run out of charge.

Anyone with any information regarding Joe’s whereabouts has been urged to contact West Midlands Police via Live Chat on their website or by calling 101 and quoting the reference number MPBW/3118/22. 

Joe is 5ft 10 ins tall and was wearing a navy blue Hollister polo shirt and light blue jeans.

The 21-year-old attended Fab ‘n’ Fresh with friends on Saturday night, but got separated from them in the early hours of Sunday morning.

He has not been seen since, and friends say it is completely out of character for him to go missing.

Friends are growing increasingly worried for his safety, and have asked for anyone who had a party on Saturday night / Sunday morning in Selly Oak that was still going on at 3:00am to contact them on 07889621794 or by messaging @charles_fernando_ on Instagram.

Charles Fernando, one of Joe’s housemates told The Birmingham Tab: “We are all extremely concerned about Joe and this is so out of character for him.

Rachel Thorp, another of his friends and housemates added: “We’re very worried, he can be vulnerable when drunk.”

Charles described to The Birmingham Tab: “It’s really scary because we don’t have much clue at all about where he could be. He could be anywhere.

“If anyone has heard anything, no matter how small, please get in touch as soon as possible. We really appreciate all the effort everyone has made,” he said.

Images of Joe have been circulating on social media for the last 24 hours, with appeals being re-shared thousands of times.

West Midlands Police has asked anyone with information to contact them via Live Chat on their website, or by calling 101 and quoting MPBW/3118/22.
