Bruce Springsteen‘s latest anthem is called “We Take Care of Our Own,” and the legendary musician is doing his part to help in the search for a missing person. Springsteen’s eldest son is a senior at Boston College, where fellow student Franco Garcia has been missing since being last seen at an area bar on Feb. 22. The rocker’s official Twitter sent out a post on Wednesday that read, “Help find Boston College student Franco Garcia. Last seen 2/22/12 in Brighton, MA. Call 617-796-2100 with any info” and attached the official missing person’s poster for Garcia.

According to The Boston Globe, state and local police are searching the area where Garcia was last seen, as well as his home in Newton, Mass. Lieutenant Bruce Apotheker, a spokesman for the Newton Police Department, told the Globe, “State and Newton police are at the house. They are trying to find some clue, some investigatory lead, that would help them in the search for this missing young man.’’

State Police spokesman David Procopio said police will once again be searching a local reservoir, “It is our devout hope that we will be able to bring Franco home to his family safely.”
