Misrach Ewunetie, the Princeton University scholarship student who went missing from her dorm last week was found dead Thursday.

Ewunetie was last seen on Oct. 14 at around 3:00 a.m. in the vicinity of Scully Hall where she lived on campus. The 20-year-old's body was found behind the tennis courts at the Ivy League institution's campus "outside on the Facilities grounds," the Mercer County Prosecutor's Office said in a statement.

On Sunday, Ewunetie's 30-year-old brother, Universe Ewunetie, said her phone last pinged Sunday at around 3:27 a.m. in a residential area near Penns Neck, which is a 7-minute drive from the university.

Two days before police discovered her body, Princeton University Public Safety issued a missing alert for the girl after her family contacted the authorities the previous night asking to conduct a wellness check on Ewunetie as they hadn't heard from her for several days.

The search for Ewunetie involved coordinated efforts by the DPS as well as state and local law enforcement agencies. As part of the search, police fanned the location near Scully Hall three times, including in one instance using police dogs.

Ewunetie had been volunteering for "housekeeping tasks" at a live music event at the school's Terrace Club and vanished on her way back home. Authorities didn't mention the cause of death but confirmed that there was no foul play involved.

"There were no obvious signs of injury and her death does not appear suspicious or criminal in nature," the statement read. However, an autopsy will be performed by the Middlesex County Medical Examiner's Office to determine the cause and manner of her demise, according to CBS News.

The school's Vice President for Campus Life, W. Rochelle Calhoun, mourned Ewunetie's untimely death. and extended his condolences to her family and loved ones.

"Misrach's death is an unthinkable tragedy. Our hearts go out to her family, her friends and the many others who knew and loved her," he wrote.

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy also offered his condolences.

"We are heartbroken by the tragic news," Murphy wrote on Twitter. "Our hearts go out to her family, friends, and fellow students who knew and loved her."
