Ohio college locked down amid case of 4 missing

HOWARD, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio college says an overnight campus lockdown was prompted by the search for a suspect in the disappearances of a woman, her two children and a female friend.

Authorities found a pickup truck belonging to the mother on property owned by Kenyon College. An e-mail sent to students late Thursday night warned of "a potentially dangerous person in the vicinity."

Kenyon spokesman Shawn Presley says the campus learned there was a suspect related to the missing people and believed authorities were searching for that person. He says investigators didn't say whether they found anyone.

The Knox County sheriff's office and other investigators have not commented.

Presley says the lockdown was precautionary.
