Thousands of Brigham Young University students are starting Fall semester Tuesday as family, friends and police search for 22-year-old student Camille Cleverley.
There's been no sign of her since Thursday when she left her Provo, Utah apartment on her bike.

Family members and friends spent the holiday weekend putting up fliers to alert the public that Camille is missing.

Police have searched the campus as well as Rock Canyon and the Provo River bike trail, but they have not found any sign of the missing woman.

Police say they have no reason to suspect foul play, but it is a possibility.

Investigators say the longer the search lasts, the more they have to consider foul play.

So far there's nothing that necessarily points in that direction.

It's been more than five days since Camille disappeared, and there's still no sign of her.

More than 150 volunteers have teamed up with her family to distribute close to 1,500 posters.

BYU mass e-mailed all students to let them know about the disappearance and to ask for leads.

Cleverley had no cell phone, but did have credit cards and a bank account.

Investigators will see if there's any activity there.

Her family says she wouldn't just leave without telling anyone.

Camille's boyfriend, David Sperry, said, "You really hope that things turn out well. But the longer that time goes by, just kind of knowing the world we live in, I don't know. It's just kind of hard to be hopeful."

Camille's brother, David Cleverley, said, "It's been tough to think about what exactly has she done. There's not too much evidence to suggest anything yet."

Camille Cleverly, 22, is 5 foot 5 inches tall, weighs 110 pounds , has blond hair and blue eyes, and was last seen with a purple and silver Schwinn bike.

Anyone with any information is asked to call Provo Police.

Destiny Search, a group which mobilized to help on other major Utah missing persons cases will help coordinate search efforts in and out of state.
