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.
