“The Alabama State University Police Department received notification on Wednesday of a male student who was possibly missing.

Dowdell’s mother, Toya Cohill, said it’s not like her son to disappear.
“He always talks to all of us,” she said after he was confirmed missing. “From my mama to my daughter to my son, somebody’s going to talk to him every day.”
