Missing Student Policy and Procedure

The following policy and procedure has been established to assist in locating members of our community who, to the best of our knowledge, are determined to be missing.

  • Missing persons should be reported to Campus Safety.
  • Once a report has been made, the Department of Campus Safety will immediately start an investigation and attempt to locate the individual. The College may use any of its resources to assist in finding the missing person. These resources may include ID card tracking, keying into residences, checking with peers and faculty and vehicle registration searches. 
  • The appropriate law enforcement agencies will be contacted no later than 24 hours after the student is reported missing.  If there is any indication of foul play, the local police department will immediately be contacted for assistance.
  • Contact will be made with parents, legal guardian, or other confidential contact (which can be designated at the Campus Safety Department) no later than 24 hours after the student is reported missing.
