The Notre Dame Police Department (NDPD) sent a campus-wide email Thursday asking for assistance in finding 21-year-old senior Annrose Jerry, who had been missing since Tuesday. 

Jerry’s body was recovered from the St. Mary’s Lake at about noon Friday. No foul play is suspected.

Jerry has dark hair and is 5’5” tall, the NDPD email said. She lived in Breen-Phillips Hall and was last reported seen at Coleman-Morse Center at 8:45 p.m. on Tuesday.

In an email to the Breen-Phillips Hall community, the dorm’s rector announced that Fr. Pete McCormick, the director of Campus Ministry, would preside at a prayer service for Jerry’s safe return. The service took place at 9:30 p.m. Thursday in the Breen-Phillips chapel.

The Indiana State Police issued a silver alert for Jerry on Thursday.

“She is believed to be in extreme danger and may require medical assistance, the alert said.
