The following email was sent to the campus community on Tuesday, March 10.

Dear all ---

Our tight-knit community is bearing grave thoughts on the return from spring break. As many of you know from campus updates and media, one of our fellow Lancers is missing. Freshman student Anjelica "AJ" Hadsell went home to Norfolk over break and then was reported missing there. We had hoped she might return to school with the resumption of classes --- but the start of classes now is passing by. We remain hopeful.

Norfolk police are leading the investigation, and we are cooperating actively and closely. We will be giving updates whenever appropriate, mindful always not to do so in a way that would interfere with the police’s work. You can help by spreading the word, and if you have information on AJ's whereabouts please immediately contact Norfolk police at 757-664-7026.

Please keep AJ and her family in your thoughts and prayers. What makes Longwood so deeply special is the care we have for one another.

President Reveley
