A college student from Minnesota who was reported missing Tuesday, Jan. 21, was found dead Friday. 

The tragic discovery was announced by University of Notre Dame President, Rev. John I. Jenkins, who said the university is "deeply saddened by the passing" of 21-year-old Annrose Jerry. 

Jerry, from Blaine, Minnesota, was a senior majoring in science-business at Notre Dame. 

She was reported missing Tuesday evening, having last been seen on campus around 8:45 p.m. Notre Dame police searched the campus and investigated leads in an effort to find her, according to the release from Notre Dame officials.

After being reported missing, the State of Indiana issued a "silver alert" because Jerry was believed to be in "extreme danger." 

Jerry's body was found in Saint Mary’s Lake on campus around 11:15 a.m. Friday. There were no apparent signs of trauma, according to St. Joseph County Coroner Michael J. McGann. 

A mass to honor Jerry will be held Monday at 9 p.m. in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart at Notre Dame.
