OXFORD, Miss. (WMC) - Oxford Police continue the search for missing Ole Miss student Jimmie “Jay” Lee.

Lee was last seen early Friday morning and his car was recovered Monday at an Oxford towing company.

Lakiowa Milan, Lee’s neighbor said Lee’s disappearance has put others on high alert.

“They should be alert now if it is a kidnapping because it is unlike him,” said Lakiowa Milan Lee’s neighbor.

She said his disappearance hits too close for comfort.

“Something like this is unusual to happen on campus. I’ve never heard anything like this happening around here,” said Milan.

Monday, Oxford Police recovered the 20-year-old’s 2014 Ford Fusion with the license plate “JayLee1.”

It was towed from the Molly Barr Trails apartment complex where police believe Lee was visiting someone Friday.

Milan said Lee is very well known on campus.

She said the search efforts have ramped and the situation has been shared thousands of times on social media.

Milan hopes it will help law enforcement find her friend.

“He’s real energetic. Real nice. Friendly. He’ll talk to anybody, he’s kind of the life of the party, he’s real sweet so it’s just unfortunate something like this has happened to him,” said Milan.

Lee was last seen wearing a silver robe, gold cap, and gray slippers.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of this missing person you’re asked to call the University of Mississippi Police Department at (662) 915-7234.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for any information that leads to Lee being found.
