A missing Clark Atlanta University student has been found dead, Atlanta police said Friday.
Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields said the body of Alexis Crawford was found in a DeKalb County park in metro Atlanta.
Crawford was last seen by her family on Oct. 30.
Clark Atlanta alerted students to the news via email and social media.
“Panther Family, we are devastated by the tragic reports regarding our own Alexis Crawford. We are here for you!” the school tweeted.
Clark Atlanta students also received a letter from CAU President George French Jr. Friday evening.
“Our deepest thoughts and prayers are with her family and with everyone who knew and loved Alexis,” he said. “Investigators say this was an isolated, off-campus incident and there was never a threat to any other members of the community.”
