Our brand new receptionist has been in the bathroom for about an hour.  

I have to cover the phones when she's away, she said she was running to the bathroom.  I just realized it's been about an hour. 

I don't want to embarrass her but I'd feel bad if  something was wrong.

Her stuff is at her desk, so I know she didn't walk out.

Do you go in there and ask "Are you okay"

We found her, outside on her cell phone.

Over an hour? Yeah, just knock once most likely they will say, " someone is in here " if no response do it again and ask if she fell in.

On the 3rd knock call the police.

Just knock and ask, a little awkward but sounds necessary

The bathroom has several stalls.

Another coworker went to check and  said that 2 stalls have to people in them, so she couldn't tell if one of them was her.

The coworker didn't want to call out to her, since there was another girl in there.  She didn't want to embarrass her.

go in there now!   yell out her name....i would be super concerned if someone was in the bathroom for an hour.  is the job overwhelming?  she may be in there crying or something.  or she could be sick or incapacitated. 

and just because i'm seriously nosy, update us when  you figure out what is taking her so long :)
