Six of the 11 Egyptian students, gone AWOL are now in custody, according to Fox News. One was reportedly "lost" in Minnesota, two surrendered to authorities in New Jersey and another two were thought to have been apprehended in New York.

If you think that you have spotted any one of the five still at large, remember that the FBI has warned: "Approach with caution."

The original 11 Egyptian men, who range in age from 17 to 22, seemed to have disappeared into thin air.

The missing men were part of a group of 17, who arrived at New York City's John F. Kennedy Airport on July 29.

There is no explanation for their mysterious disappearance and five are still at large.

Although the 11 Egyptian students entered the U.S. on valid passports, they failed to show up at Montana State University as part of a student exchange program.

The lookout bulletin issued on them sates that "At the present there are no known associations to any terrorist groups, approach with caution."
