PITTSFORD, New York — Two of three Afghan students missing from a college program have been heard from, but their whereabouts remain a mystery, a US Department of State spokesman said Thursday.

Nazareth College in New York reported Feb. 6 that one of 20 Afghan students on campus for a four-week cultural exchange program had failed to report for classes. On Saturday, two more were reported missing.

The students are two 21-year-old women and a man.

The first student has since contacted her family to say she's safe, Department of State spokesman John Fleming said. Another has contacted the school through a lawyer, he said. The last student has not been heard from.
