If a student of the College community has reason to believe that a student who resides in on campus housing is missing, he or she should immediately notify the HutchCC Security Department. HutchCC Security will generate a missing person report and initiate an investigation along with the Hutchinson Police Department. After investigating the missing person report, should the HutchCC Security Department determine that the student is missing and has been missing for more than 24 hours, HutchCC Security will notify the student’s emergency contact, or confidentially identified individual, 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 individual, HutchCC Security or designee will notify the student’s parent or legal guardian immediately after HutchCC Security has determined that the student has been missing for more than 24 hours.
In addition to registering an emergency contact, students residing in on-campus housing have the option to identify, confidentially, an individual to be contacted by HutchCC in the event the student is determined to be missing for more than 24 hours.
