In all cases missing person notifications received by residence life staff or the Dean of Students will be reported to campus security and in all cases the reverse will hold. Once the person has been missing for 24 hours or if there is a reason to suspect foul play, a report will be made to the local police. In all cases when the missing person is less than 18 years of age the emergency contact and the parent or guardian will be notified. For students over 18 years of age, the emergency contact given by the student will be notified. The parent or guardian will be notified if the over 18 year old student remains missing for over 24 hours or earlier if notification of the parent or guardian is in the judgment of campus officials to be helpful to locating the student.
