Update: Two arrested after missing Ole Miss students found safe
OXFORD, Miss. — Two men have been arrested after two University of Mississippi students went missing from the Oxford Square on Sunday, police said Monday.
Both women were found safe, Oxford police said.
The suspects’ identities have not been released, and Oxford Police said Panola County authorities would have to release the names.
According to Oxford Police, around 1:11 a.m. Sunday on the Oxford Square, the two women got into a car, possibly a gray Honda Pilot, occupied by two men.
Police said the car drove to a house in Panola County and the two women got out, but one then got back in. She was held against her will at a Panola County house, police said.
A Lafayette County deputy picked up the woman who left the car in that area around 2:30 a.m. No one had seen or heard from the other student since it drove away the second time.
At 10:30 p.m. Sunday, police said, a tip came in with a possible location for the missing student.
Panola County sheriff’s authorities made contact with her and “got her out safely,” police said in a release.
