Lance Buckley Missing in Maryland

May 8, 2015

PhD student Lance Buckley, missing in Maryland since Tuesday, had an appointment at Howard University to pick up his graduation packet. 

He appears to have made it safely to campus, but hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

Lance, 33, is married and a new father. His wife says she received one text message that morning from her husband’s phone, although he subsequently failed to show up for a noontime meeting.

Police say that the day after he disappeared a ping from that same device had registered “very briefly” and the public area where it originated from immediately searched, to no avail.

They note the missing man’s handgun is also unaccounted for, but that he poses no threat, either to himself or to others.
