Friends, family and law enforcement officials
pleaded Thursday for anyone with information on

State patrol spokesman Jeff Hanson said de

’This is uncharacteristic, and that is why we

Timarree Brown, Marshall’s roommate, said
Marshall would not leave for an extended period
without telling someone. She said Marshall had
no reason to run away.

Violations cancel crew practice

Crew members last week because campus

Crew members showed up for practice
last Thursday morning and found the Office
of Campus Recreation had locked them out
of the boathouse and placed no trespassing
signs on the facility. Members were denied
access to the building for six days until
Leah Hall Dorothy, assistant director for
sports clubs, said campus recreation changed
the locks to keep the access policy consistent
among sports clubs and campus recreation
facilities. The boathouse is owned by campus
recreation, she said.
v Bill Goa, associate director for facilities
management, said the building’s locks arc
changed regularly to prevent unauthorized
people with duplicate keys from entering.
Neither Goa nor Dorothy knew the last
time the locks were changed, but agreed it
had been several years.
Before Thursday’s lockout, three crew
members carried keys to the boathouse and
could access it at any time. Under the new
guidelines, those members can check out
only one key from the OCR and must return
it that day. No one can be in the boathouse
between 11:15 p.m. and 6:15 a.m., when
campus recreation is closed.
JefTTejral, a senior natural resources major
and crew member, said restricted access would
make it more difficult for members to use the
boathouse for individual workouts. That
would hurt the club in the long run, he said.
“It seems like a control issue.
