2. Missing Persons for Students Residing on-campus

If you are concerned about a potential missing student, please contact the Hendrix Public Safety Office immediately at 501-450-7711. If a student is reported potentially missing to you, then you must report this information to Hendrix Public Safety immediately. The Public Safety office will work with Student Affairs to make contact with the missing student and to identify his/her most recent contact points on campus (card access, meals, class attendance, etc.).

If we are unable to make contact with the missing student within a reasonable timeframe (up to 24 hours from notification), the College will notify the confidential emergency contact and Conway Police Department within 24 hours of the determination that the student is missing.

All students may designate an emergency contact person. On-campus students complete an emergency contact form when they check into their housing assignment. Off-campus students are encouraged to contact the Residence Life Office to complete an emergency contact form. Students residing on-campus have the option to designate a confidential emergency contact person for missing person investigations only. A student's confidential contact information will be accessible only to authorized campus officials and law enforcement in the course of the missing person investigation. If the student did not designate a confidential emergency contact for missing person cases, then the general emergency contact persons will be contacted. If the student is under 18 and not emancipated, then the custodial parent or guardian will be contacted in addition to any other emergency contacts listed.
