Original story, 10:47 a.m.: 
Police are looking for the principal of Southern High School, who was reported as missing by a relative since early Tuesday morning.

Anne Arundel County police sent out a notice to the public Wednesday that they are attempting to locate Marc Procaccini, principal at SHS, for a well-being check. A relative of Procaccini's filed a missing person's report late Tuesday night, indicating that he had not been seen since 2 a.m. Tuesday.

In the release, police spokesman Lt. T.J. Smith said Procaccini is not "a critically missing person," despite postings on Facebook which Smith categorized as "premature."

"At this time, there is no indication of any foul play, it appears that Mr. Procaccini left voluntarily. Although this was categorized as a missing person, this situation is being treated as a check well-being due to the fact that Mr. Procaccini left on his own accord," Smith wrote in the release.

Anne Arundel County Public School System spokesman Bob Mosier said Procaccini had requested and was granted leave from SHS. Mike May, the assistant principal of SHS is in charge at the school for now, Mosier said. 

Counselors are on staff to speak with students or staff who may be fearful or have concerns about this incident, Mosier said. 

Anyone with information on Procaccini's whereabouts is urged to contact police at 410-222-8610.
