A teenager trapped on the missing Titan submersible is a student at Strathclyde University in Glasgow.
Along with his father Shahzada Dawood, 48, and three other males, Suleman Dawood, 19, is aboard the ship.
The teen’s enrolment at the institution was confirmed by the school on Thursday.
A spokesperson said: “We are deeply concerned about Suleman, his father and the others involved in this incident. Our thoughts are with their families and loved ones and we continue to hope for a positive outcome.”
It is currently believed that the submersible craft, which went lost on Sunday while traveling to the Titanic site, has only a few hours of oxygen left.
The teenager’s family is in her thoughts, Glasgow Labour MSP Pam Duncan-Glancy said at First Minister’s Questions on Thursday at Holyrood.
She said: “The young man on the Titan submersible is a student in Glasgow.
“I’m sure that everyone here will join me in sharing their thoughts with him and his family at this unprecedented and difficult time.”
Shahzada Dawood is a vice-chairman of the Pakistani company Engro Corporation and a longtime adviser to the King’s charity Prince’s Trust International, with an emphasis on its activities in Pakistan. She is believed to reside in Surbiton, south-west London.
Suleman Dawood is a “big fan of science fiction literature and learning new things,” according to a previous statement from the family. He also enjoys playing volleyball and solving Rubik’s Cubes.
