Missing Persons Policy

As a campus that maintains housing facilities, Asbury University has established a missing student notification policy and procedures for those students who live in on-campus housing and have been missing for 24 hours or more. Both informal and formal means will be used to address a more extended, consistent absence from the day-to-day operations of the campus. Each student will be given the opportunity to identify a confidential contact to be notified not more than 24 hours after the student is deemed missing. Parents or legal guardians of students under 18 who are not independent will also be contacted. Local law enforcement will be notified within 24 hours after the student is deemed missing. If you believe a friend is missing, contact student development personnel or campus security immediately. Complete procedures, including indicators used in determining if a student is missing, are available in the Office of Student Development or Safety & Security.
