Janice Morse reports:
Glory Hagerty, a University of Cincinnati student, apparently was stunned to find out she had been reported missing, says UC police Lt. Col. Jeff Corcoran.
Hagerty, 18, had gone on “an unscheduled trip” to Dayton, Ohio, with some friends, Corcoran said. One of them saw news reports indicating that Hagerty had last been seen almost a week ago and that police needed help to find her.
The friend asked Hagerty something like, “Hey, do you know that you’re missing?” Corcoran said.
Hagerty called UC police and informed them that she, indeed, was not missing; they advised her to call her mother, Corcoran said.
With that, police considered the case closed, Corcoran said, adding, “We’re happy with the outcome.”
Just after 7 p.m. Friday, the department sent out a public notice that Hagerty had been found safe.
Friends and relatives couldn’t contact Hagerty via cell phone because hers had broken and was still being replaced. But they knew she had an iPod that she uses to access Facebook, yet she registered no activity on that social networking site, fueling their concerns.
Hagerty is a 2012 graduate of Mason High School, and is enrolled as a freshman at UC.
Hagerty was last seen leaving her dorm, Turner Hall, off Jefferson Avenue, around 11 p.m. Saturday. Police believe she was in the company of an unknown male; a student who lives in the dorm reported her missing on Thursday.
