Missing Student Policy

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.
