The mentor is identified in police reports as Canesius Bindaba. There are four missing boys and two missing girls, ranging in age from 16 to 18, according to the tweets.

The D.C. Police Department posted photos of all six teens on their Twitter page. Police reports say the mentor said the teens traveled from Burundi for the competition and have one-year visas, but he doesn't know where the teens went. An itinerary of the event says that the robotics competition was scheduled to end at 5:30 p.m., and closing ceremonies were to run from 5:30 7:00 p.m. Joe Sestak, the competition's president, called police and reports were submitted to the authorities who are investigating their disappearance.

"Security of the students is of paramount importance to FIRST Global", organizers said, noting that they ensure students get to their dormitories after the competition by providing safe transportation to students staying at Trinity Washington University.
