TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Tempe Police announced Friday afternoon that a DNA test has confirmed that missing ASU student Jack Colulias' DNA was in the shoe that was recently found by his mother.

Police said they are continuing to search for the 19-year-old, and are investigating an area that was not covered in their original search.

Culolias had been kicked out of a Tempe bar last Friday night and was suspected of being drunk.
 
Campus police say Culolias' friends saw him heading to a taxi cab, but he hasn't been seen since. His mother reported him missing Sunday.

Police had been searching Tempe Town Lake near the area where Colulias' shoe was found, but on Thursday they said they would be calling off that part of the search because no evidence had been found.

On Friday, authorities said they would resume the search after a resident reported seeing something that resembled a person's silhouette in the water.
