IU's policy is to thoroughly investigate all reports of missing persons, and to ensure that all missing person notifications are made promptly and in accordance with applicable state and federal law.

If a student who resides in on-campus housing is believed to be missing, this must be reported immediately to the IUPD.  The IUPD will obtain a report and initiate an investigaiton.  If the IUPD determines that a student is missing and has been missing for more than 24 hours, the IUPD will notify local law enforcement and inform the student's designated contact person(s) no more than 24 hours after the student is determined to be missing.  These procedures may be implemented in less than 24 hours if circumstances warrant.

In addition to identifying an emergency contact, any student who resides in on-campus housing facility may identify the same or different person to be contacted should the student be determined to be missing.  If a student has identified such a person, the IUPD will notify that person no more than 24 hours after the student is determined to be missing.  If the missing student is under the age of 18 and is not an emancipated person, the IUPD will notify the student's parent or legal guardian in addition to the students designated contact.  This contact information will be registered confidentially, will be accessible only to authorized campus officials, and will not be disclosed outside of a need to further a missing student investigation.  A student can register their missing student contact information by:

  • Contacting Residence Life in Meadow Lodge Room 113

Information about the missing person will be entered into National Crime Information Center (NCIC) within two hours of being received by police.  This information will also be sent to any police department near the location where the missing student was last seen, or any law enforcement agency to which the reporting party requests the information be sent, provided the officer considers the request to be reasonable.
