WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Moe Sed's teachers say it's like he vanished into thin air. He was last seen at his home in Waterloo a few weeks ago. 

"So this is Moe Sed's desk right here," said Catherine Wager, one of Moe Sed's teachers. 

Moe Sed was a student at Waterloo West High School. The seat in Wagner's class is currently empty. 

"I know that I'm going to be marking him absent, not because he's just skipping out, but because he's missing and we don't know where he's at," said Catherine Wagner.

Teachers and students say having him gone, is like a piece is missing at Waterloo West High School.

"He's a nice person Every time he sees me in the hallway he always greeting me, like what's up bro," said Mi Reh, Moe Sed's classmate.

Missing posters with Sed's photo on it can be found in the front office, hallways, and classrooms.

They're not giving up hope, continuing to encourage people to look for him. Wagner and her sister, both teachers at West, even organized a search on their day off of school last week.

"I mean the most important thing as a teacher is the safety of your students and the safety of the kids in that building. And so if one of them has gone missing we need to go out and find that particular person," said Liz Wagner.

They say they think of Sed often and hope he returns home soon.

"I think of him everyday. He's the first thing I think of when I wake up in the morning. I hope he's ok. When I go to bed at night I always say to myself I hope he's somewhere warm, I hope he's somewhere safe," said Catherine Wagner. 

Moe Sed is a refugee from Burma. He is five feet tall with black/red hair. If you have any information, contact police at 319-291-2515.
