Sometime on Monday, Forge was kidnapped from the Salem Center Mall by Lorna Dane. We have the evidence of a security tape and Kyle's feral senses to suggest that he did not go willingly. The Jeep was abandoned at the scene, and a call from the police to pick it up is why we knew where to look for him.
We do not know why this happened. We do not know what's going on with Lorna, why she would do this. Unfortunately, this increases the likelihood that she was indeed involved in the violent incident that inspired my first keep-your-distance warning. The evidence was inconclusive on that occasion. It is not, this time.
I'm instituting additional security precautions for every student in this school right now. You do not leave mansion grounds without checking out with Lee. You give him an itinerary and an estimated time of return for every trip. You carry your cell phone with the panic button wherever you go, and if there's even a hint of trouble, you push it. Yes, I know this clearly didn't help Forge, but we don't know whether he waited that second too long or not. I would much rather respond to a false alarm than have anyone else kidnapped off the street.
No one is permitted off mansion grounds by themselves. There are no exceptions. I would prefer you to travel in groups of at least three at all times, including at least one staff member or older student.
Essential trips only, for now. School, work, off-campus medical appointments. That sort of thing. Since you'll be telling Lee your itinerary, trust me, he will tell you whether or not it's essential travel.
I know how close many of you are to Lorna, but we cannot afford a strike three here. If you see her, run away. Immediately. Press the panic button as you're running, but do not look back. Don't attempt to talk to her, don't attempt to reason with her. Run.
