Missing Persons & Mental Health Emergencies

Missing Persons Procedures

In the event that a student is discovered to be missing for a period exceeding 24 hours a report should be made to one of the following university officials


Following receipt of a missing student report, university officials will notify the A&T University Police Department who will follow their own investigation procedures.  If the student has designated an emergency contact person with the university, the university will notify that individual within 24 hours of receiving a report that the student is missing.  North Carolina A&T students can confidentially designate an emergency contact person by completing an Emergency Contact Registration form (available below) or residence hall students may fill one out when they check in the residence hall.   By law, the parent/guardian of students who are under 18 and not legally emancipated will be notified in the event that the student has been reported as missing for 24 hours.
