If a member of the Northeast campus community has reason to believe that a
student who resides on-campus is missing, he or she should notify the Campus
Security Department at 903-563-1417 and/or the Director of Student Housing at
903-434-8168 so they can investigate whether the student is actually missing. In the
absence of either the Security Department or the Director of Housing, the Titus
county Sheriff’s office should be notified at 903-572-6641. All official student
missing reports should be immediately referred to the Campus Security Department.
If the Director of Student Housing determines that the student is missing and has
been missing for more than 24 hours, the Director of Student Housing will notify the
student’s emergency contact as soon as possible, but no later 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 (legal independent status) individual, the Director of
Student Housing will notify the student's parent or legal guardian and Northeast
Security immediately after the student has been determined to be missing for more
than 24 hours. Northeast security will notify Titus County Sheriff’s Department as
soon as possible, but no later than 24 hours, after a student has been declared
In addition to registering an emergency contact, students residing on-campus have
the option to identify, confidentially, an individual to be contacted in the event the
student is determined to be missing for more than 24 hours. If a student has
identified such an individual, Northeast will notify that individual as soon as
possible, but no later than 24 hours, after the student is determined to be missing.
Students who wish to identify a confidential contact can do so through the Director
of Student Housing.
