Two University of Florida students in Haiti who had been unaccounted for since Tuesday’s earthquake are alive and well, the UF Dean of Students has learned.

Family members reported Thursday morning that Jon Bougher and Roman Safiullin, both master’s students in the College of Journalism and Communications, had been contacted and are safe, Dean of Students Paige Crandall said.

“This is absolutely tremendous news,” UF President Bernie Machen said. “It’s a bright spot in the midst of a horrible tragedy. While we’re thankful that Jon and Roman are safe, we continue to keep the earthquake victims and their loved ones in our thoughts.”
