As police continue the search for a missing UCLA honors student, family members posted fliers on Facebook that revealed the student had a medical condition.

David John Goeser, 22, was under a doctor's care and taking medication at the time of his disappearance, according to the flier. He was last seen on Pacific Coast Highway near Coral Beach and Los Liones.  Goeser's car was found on July 25 in Pacific Palisades.

"He may be heading north to Vancouver, WA via public transportation," the flier says.

Goeser, a senior English major, was last seen by his roommates on July 22 in the 1000 block of Roebling Avenue in Westwood. His family went to his house to check on him after not hearing from him in over week, but only found his identification, cellphone and credit cards.

His father, Mark Goeser, in an interview last week on KNX radio, said his son was struggling with depression.

"He left everything behind," Mark Goeser said. "That is very concerning to us."
