FAIRMONT — Pierpont Community & Technical College’s commencement ceremony will continue as scheduled Friday despite a day-long search by the Fairmont Police Department and campus police for a missing teen believed to be suicidally depressed and potentially dangerous.

Sarah Hensley, vice president for community engagement, said lineup would begin at 6 p.m., with the commencement ceremony starting at 6:30 p.m. A rehearsal scheduled for 3:30 p.m. was canceled because of security concerns.
