TUSCOLA COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A Mid-Michigan school district is in secure mode as officials search for a former student they say may be suicidal. 

Reese Public Schools announced on their Facebook page that students were on secure mode due to a “circumstance in the community.”

Police told TV5 they called the school district and asked them to go into secure mode because a former student they were dealing with, an 18-year-old recent male graduate, had been drinking and appeared to be suicidal.

Police said they now cannot locate the male, so as a precaution, they asked the district to go into secure mode. Investigators believe he was armed when he ran off about 1 a.m. Wednesday. 

There were no threats made against the school, police said.

“Please know that this is just precautionary measure as we work both with the Tuscola Sheriff and Reese Public Safety,” the district said.

School officials said students will be dismissed at their scheduled time. They will have extra security at dismissal as a precaution.

Parents with questions are asked to contact Superintendent Keith Wetters at (989) 868-9864.
