Family informed the community of their loss Saturday morning on a Facebook page created in his memory.
Durkin, of Rye N.H., was studying abroad in Rome with 5 other Bates students in a program through Trinity College in Connecticut.
Friends said Durkin had gone out to a bar and never returned, and hadn't been seen for two days.
Durkin, a junior, was a linebacker on the Bates football team and was studying economics.
