Three U.C. Berkeley students were injured in the truck attack in Nice, France, on Bastille Day, and one — junior Nicolas Leslie — still has not been located, according to an announcement from the university.

The students were amongst the 85 attending U.C. Berkeley’s Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Europe study abroad program, which takes place over the course of a month. Seven students have since elected to leave the program and will have returned to the U.S. by the end of this weekend, the university said.

University staff, local officials, U.S. consular officials and Leslie’s family have been working together to try to locate the student.

His mother, Paola Bottoni Leslie, also shared a video to her Facebook page with photos of what she said her son was wearing on the day of the Bastille Day attack.

Two of the three injured students — Vladyslav Kostiuk, 23, a senior majoring in computer science, and Diane Huang, 20, a senior majoring in environmental economics and policy — have been released from the hospital after receiving medical treatment for a broken leg and foot, respectively.

Daryus Medora, 21, an undeclared sophomore, still remains in the hospital with a broken leg.

The study abroad has temporarily been suspended to follow along with the three days of national mourning taking place in France, but will continue through to July 24, it’s original end date.
