Alexis Jones-Rhodes has been found safe in Illinois. According to WSB-TV 2,  police say there was no foul play involved in her disappearance.

It was reported that Rhodes’ parents and about 40 family members and friends became worried when she did not walk across the stage at the graduation. They then learned she had not checked in that morning and called police.

However, Clark Atlanta, in a statement issued by associate vice president Donna Brock, said that while Jones-Rhodes was enrolled for the spring 2015 semester, she was ineligible for graduation.

The school confirmed that there is no record that Jones-Rhodes signed in for the commencement exercises.

She was driving a black Hyundai Sonata with Georgia license plate BPC 6177.

  1. She probably had family driving in from out of town . . . SMH. I know people that spent almost 7 years in college for an undergraduate degree. I’m sure she regrets this stunt.

    I’m glad she was found safe and sound. I’d give a thousand graduations to have one more day with my daughter.

  3. What a mess! I hope it’s nothing more than her lying about school and graduation. She got herself deep into something. Hope she gets help, and does well.
    But like every false claim of rape (which I believe is rare), she has let down everyone that may one day go missing, in a criminal way. I think it would help her to volunteer at a place that tracks, or looks after runaway girls.

  4. If she intentionally deceived her family knowing all along she was not graduating having her family members coming to see her walk I’m sure some traveling from out of town. She is a real coward and mentally unstable.

    She obviously told her parents she was graduating and was too embarrassed to tell them the truth. This affects those young people who have really been abducted because it will slow down the response time if their is doubt about the sincerity.

    Okay so let me get this right, she was to graduate on Monday. It’s now Thursday and they just now found out she was Illinois? WTH is that about? Or is this the infamous BAW journalism.

  7. So she put on her cap and gown at 4am, drove in the opposite direction alone for about 10 hours . . . Hmmmm? Well, glad she was found safe, happy ending unless this was an abduction.

    This is sad to hear, I hope she will be found soon and pursue her hopes and dreams. Praying for her safe return.

  9. I pray know harm has come to her. I graduated from college 2 weeks ago I know how excited she must have been heading to graduation to receive what she had worked hard to achieve then not to make it there. Sad indeed
