An OU student has been reported missing to the OU Police Department.

OUPD Major Bruce Chan said a missing persons report was filed at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday for OU sophomore Jeffrey Davis by his parents.

Chan said that OUPD was "handling the investigation," and that Davis has now been entered into the National Crime Information Center so any officer that checks his identification will know he is a missing person.

Davis' mother posted about his missing status on Facebook Tuesday morning, asking for anyone who knows or has seen him for help in finding him.

Student Affairs vice president David Surratt said his office is aware of the situation and is gathering further information.

Sarah Jensen, Norman Police Department's public information officer, said she could not find anything about Davis' missing status in NPD's database. It is unclear whether or not NPD officers will be assisting OUPD officers in the search for Davis.

This post will be updated as new information becomes available.
