U grad reported missing; foul play not suspected

A University graduate living in Minneapolis has been missing since Dec. 14.

Jill Theresa Iverson, 24, graduated last August with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering.

Iverson made plans to meet her father – who lives in St. Croix Falls, Wis. – to go Christmas shopping Dec. 14. She never showed up.

She also had plans to meet friends in Wisconsin on Dec. 15 and did not arrive, according to a University police press release.

“There’s no indication of foul play,” said University police Detective Patricia Gjerde.

Iverson left her car, clothes and purse at her apartment, but her driver’s license was missing, according to a missing person report on the University police Web site.

According to the press release, Iverson’s car was partially packed as though she was preparing for a trip.

Iverson told friends she was going to start her life over, and she left notes that could be construed as suicide notes, according to the Web site.

Iverson’s father reported her disappearance to University police.

“We’ve followed up on all the leads we have,” said University police Capt. Steve Johnson.

Iverson is a white female with a medium build. She is 5 foot 7 and has long, dark brown hair and blue eyes. She wears glasses or contacts and has braces on her teeth. She was last seen wearing a lightweight running jacket.

Members of Iverson’s family declined to comment.

Anyone with information regarding Iverson’s disappearance should call Gjerde at (612)-624-3550.
