Update as of 11:00 a.m. Wednesday: according to Millersville’s Brian Hazlett, Brandon Harper has been located and is reported safe. No other information has been provided by Millersville, and Harper’s family has not made any public statements about his finding.

As of 9:07 a.m. Tuesday, Millersville’s Vice President of Student Affairs, Brian Hazlett, sent out an email to Millersville students about the disappearance of 21-year-old Brandon Harper. He is a current junior majoring in Business Administration at Millersville.

According to Hazlett, Harper has been missing since Sunday, last seen driving his gold Buick, with a Pennsylvania license plate JGY7930. He did not have his phone on him during this outing.

Millersville Borough Police were first notified that he was missing by his friends and family after he did not return to his off-campus apartment. The Borough then proceeded to file a missing adult report with the National Crime Information Center Monday night.

Rob Harper, Brandon Harper’s father, reported on his Facebook that his son’s “last known stop was in Massachusetts sometime this morning.” Recently he updated his followers that there is a possibility he’s currently driving to Maine.

According to Janet Kacskos, Millersville’s Director of Communications, there have been no new developments on Harper’s whereabouts. “The Borough Police have communicated frequently with University Police and there is not a concern for anyone on campus or in the community to take any extra precautions,” Kacskos states.

Millersville Borough Police are currently investigating the case.

If anyone has any information on the whereabouts of Brandon Harper, they are asked to contact the Millersville Borough Police at 717-872-4657.
