HOUSTON – Texas EquuSearch said Tuesday it is suspending its search for Jason Landry, a Texas State student from Missouri City.

The team has been searching for Landry over the last nine days since his disappearance.

Landry’s vehicle was found totaled and abandoned on a dirt road about 30 miles from campus. He was reportedly driving back home for Christmas break.
