St John’s student Isobel Priest has been found “safe”, forty eight hours after her disappearance.

Andy Riddles posted on the Facebook group Overheard at Oxford Uni, “Isobel has been found safe, please spread the word”, at around 7.30 this morning.
He added, “Thank you so much everyone for your support, you helped brighten a dark few days.”
Anna Spearing-Ewyn had posted on the group on Friday evening asking, “If anyone has seen or heard from Isobel Priest at all in the last two days please get in touch with myself or Andrew Riddles immediately.”
Meanwhile, OUSU President Louis Trup had sent round an urgent email to students after midnight on Saturday morning, telling them to contact police if they had any information about her whereabouts.
Police had also issued an appeal for her whereabouts shortly after midnight. However, at around 10.30am Thames Valley Police tweeted, “Thanks to everyone who retweeted our appeal to find missing student Isobel Priest from #Oxford. We’re happy to report she’s been found safe.”





For Cherwell, maintaining editorial independence is vital. We are run entirely by and for students. To ensure independence, we receive no funding from the University and are reliant on obtaining other income, such as advertisements. Due to the current global situation, such sources are being limited significantly and we anticipate a tough time ahead – for us and fellow student journalists across the country.

So, if you can, please consider donating. We really appreciate any support you’re able to provide; it’ll all go towards helping with our running costs. Even if you can't support us monetarily, please consider sharing articles with friends, families, colleagues - it all helps!

Thank you!
