Efforts to find a Texas State University student who was reported missing last week that included helicopters and drones have been suspended according to a Texas-based nonprofit that assists law-enforcement agencies with Search and Rescue missions.
Search missing Texas State student that included drones suspended
Jason Landry, 21, was reported missing on Dec. 13 in Caldwell County after a car that he was driving was found crashed in an unincorporated area of Caldwell County, near Luling reports the Austin American-Statesman.
According to the nonprofit organization to search for the missing student included helicopters, search dogs and drones over the last nine days.
“We will not speculate on what may have happened to Jason, but we feel the vast area surrounding the accident scene has been thoroughly searched, and Jason still hasn't been found,” the organization stated in the Tuesday release. “As a result, Texas EquuSearch is suspending our search operations for Jason until law enforcement investigators obtain credible and sufficient information that would lead our team into a more specific area to search.”
Laundry is believed to have been on his way home to Missouri City near Houston Texas said authorities last week. Anyone with information about Landry's disappearance is asked to call the Caldwell County sheriff's office at 512-398-6777, or Texas EquuSearch at 281-309-9500.
Over the last few years, we have seen drones play an ever more important role during search and rescue, and even recovery missions. Unfortunately, this particular search that included drones as well has been suspended.
